Tetrabenazine Racemate (Ro 1-9569 Racemate) is a selective and reversible inhibitor of vesicular monoamine transporter-2 (VMAT-2). (1) The reference for administration is 0.25-0.75 mg/kg IP (2) Injections of tetrabenazine into accumbens core also reduced FR5 lever pressing and increased chow intake. (3) Tetrabenazine (Racemate) reduced extracellular DA and altered DARPP-32 signaling in both substance-P- and enkephalin-containing accumbens neurons. (4) Tetrabenazine (Racemate) inhibits locomotor activity and produces hypothermia upon systemic administration in rats and mice.

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
