Remoxipride hydrochloride

Pricing Availability Delivery Time Qty
Cat.No. 0916 - Remoxipride hydrochloride | C16H23BrN2O3.HCl | CAS No. 73220-03-8
Description: Selective D2-like antagonist
Chemical Name: (S)-(-)-3-Bromo-N-[(1-ethyl-2-pyrrolidinylmethyl]2,6-dimethoxybenzamide hydrochloride

Biological Activity

Dopamine D2 receptor antagonist showing selectivity over D3 and D4 receptors (Ki values are ~ 300, ~ 1600, and ~ 2800 nM for D2, D3 and D4 receptors respectively). Exhibits antipsychotic activity in vivo with no extrapyramidal side effects. 50-fold more potent than sulpiride in antagonising the effects of apomorphine in the rat.
