Biological Activity for Opicapone
Opicapone is a reversible catechol O-methyltransferase inhibitor (COMT) inhibitor (IC50 = 224 nM). Decreases the ATP content and mitochondrial membrane potential in cells (IC50 values are 98 μM and 181 μM respectively). When administered with L-DOPA (Cat. No. 3788) it attenuates Parkinson's-like symptoms in an MPTP-induced animal model.
