Biological Activity

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. Binds to the human 5-HT transporter with a Ki of 0.9 nmol/l and is between 150- and 900- fold selective over 5-HT1A, 5-HT2A, H1, α1, α2-adrenergic, and muscarinic receptors. Antidepressant. Induces differentiation of neuronal precursors, enhancing neuronal characteristics.

Deuterated analog also available.
