Biological Activity for Dihydro-β-erythroidine hydrobromide
Dihydro-β-erythroidine hydrobromide is a member of the Erythrina alkaloids, it is a competitive nicotinic acetylcholine receptor antagonist with moderate selectivity for the neuronal α4 receptor subunit (IC50 values are 0.19 and 0.37 μM for α4β4 and α4β2 receptors, respectively). Antagonizes behavioral effects of nicotine in vivo. Dihydro-β-erythroidine blocks excitation of striatal GABAergic neurons, which completely suppress polysynaptic inhibition between striatal cholinergic interneurons. Dihydro-β-erythroidine hydrobromide has antidepressive-like effects in mice (forced swim and mouse suspension). Orally bioavailable.

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.
