Great water soluble version that worked beautifully in my hands. Used to stimulate virally-expressed hM4Di for behavioral neuroscience applications. CNO-induced activation of hM4Di significantly inhibited neuronal activation as confirmed via c-Fos staining.

Chemogenetics Research Bulletin
Produced by Tocris, the chemogenetics research bulletin provides an introduction to chemogenetic methods to manipulate neuronal activity. It outlines the development of RASSLs, DREADDs and PSAMs, and the use of chemogenetic compounds. DREADD ligands and PSEMs available from Tocris are highlighted.
Allosteric GPCR Pharmacology PosterNew
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are intrinsically allosteric proteins. This poster highlights some of the key insights into allosteric mechanisms of GPCR biology, highlighting key facets of GPCR allostery and therapeutic applications of allosteric modulators.
GPCR Efficacy and Biased Agonism Poster
GPCRs can interact with multiple distinct transducers or regulatory proteins and these can be preferentially engaged in an agonist-specific manner giving rise to biased agonism. This poster discusses cutting edge GPCR signaling pharmacology and highlights therapeutic applications of biased agonism.
