Biological Activity for Fluoxetine hydrochloride
Fluoxetine hydrochloride is a 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. Fluoxetine also inhibits assembly and activation of the NLRP3-ASC inflammasome and prevents degeneration of retinal pigmented epithelium (RPE) cells in an animal model of dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
