Biological Activity for Zolmitriptan
Zolmitriptan is a potent 5-HT1B/1D/1F agonist (Ki values are 0.63, 5.01 and 63.09 nM for h5-HT1D, h5-HT1B and h5-HT1F receptors respectively). Inhibits trigeminal nerve stimulation-mediated neurogenic plasma protein extravasation in guinea pigs; blocks long excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs) in a rat model of spinal cord injury.
