Positive allosteric modulator of nicotinic α4β2 receptors; selectively increases the ionic current through α4β2 in the presence of ACh. Displays 14.7-fold selectivity for α4β2 over homomeric (α7) receptors. Moderately cytotoxic in HCT-116 cells. Also inhibits human muscle (αβεδ) and Torpedo (αβγδ) nAChRs (IC50 values are 1.0 and 0.1 μM, respectively) by binding in the ion channel.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a degenerative brain disease and the most common cause of dementia, affecting approximately 47 million people worldwide. Updated in 2015, this poster summarizes the structural and functional changes observed in the progression of this neurodegenerative disease, as well as classic AD drug targets.
Peripheral sensitization is the reduction in the threshold of excitability of sensory neurons that results in an augmented response to a given external stimulus. This poster outlines the excitatory and inhibitory signaling pathways involved in modulation of peripheral sensitization. The role of ion channels, GPCRs, neurotrophins, and cytokines in sensory neurons are also described.
