Biological Activity for Tasimelteon

Tasimelteon is a high affinity and selective dual melatonin receptor (MT1/MT2) agonist (Ki values are 0.304 nM and 0.0692 nM, respectively). It has no significant interaction with any other commonly screened receptors or enzyme binding sites. Tasimelteon induces a potent, concentration-dependent inhibition of forskolin-stimulated cAMP accumulation in NIH-3T3 cells stably expressing human MT1 (EC50 = 0.74 nM) or expressing human MT2 (EC50 = 0.1 nM) receptors. Tasimelteon is a circadian regulator.
