Biological Activity for Rilmenidine hemifumarate

Rilmenidine hemifumarate is an i1-imidazoline binding site selective ligand and α2-adrenoceptor agonist. Possesses greater I1 vs α2 selectivity than the prototypical compound, clonidine. Also thought to enhance autophagy; shown to increase LC3-II levels in PC12 cells.
