Epiboxidine 

Cat. No.: HY-138953
Handling Instructions

Epiboxidine is a potent and selective neural nAChR agonist with Kis of 0.46 nM and 1.2 nM for rat and human α4β2 nAChRs, respectively. Epiboxidine is a methylisoxazole analog of the alkaloid Epibatidine, and is also an analog of another nAChR agonist, ABT 418.

Description

Epiboxidine is a potent and selective neural nAChR agonist with Kis of 0.46 nM and 1.2 nM for rat and human α4β2 nAChRs, respectively. Epiboxidine is a methylisoxazole analog of the alkaloid Epibatidine, and is also an analog of another nAChR agonist, ABT 418[1].

IC50 & Target

Ki: 0.46 nM (rat α4β2 nAChR) and 1.2 nM (human α4β2 nAChR)[1]

In Vitro

Epiboxidine has affinity and functional at central neuronal α4β2 receptors, with Kis of 0.46 and 1.2 in rat and humen[1].
Epiboxidine has activity at ganglionic-type α3β4*-nicotinic receptors of PC12 cells, with a Ki of 19[1].
Epiboxidine is much less toxic than Epibatidine[1].
Epiboxidine stimulates sodium-22 influx in PC12 and TE671 cells, with EC50s of 0.18 and 2.6 µM[2].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

In Vivo

Epiboxidine (20 μg/kg; ip; once) treatment shows marked analgetic activity in mice[1].
Epiboxidine (50 and 100 mg/kg; intraperitoneal injected; once) causes marked antinociception as measured in the hot-plate assay[2].
Epiboxidine inhibits [3H]nicotine binding in rat cerebral cortical membranes, with a Ki of 0.6 nM[2].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

Animal Model: Adult male NIH Swiss strain mice (25-30 g)[2]
Dosage: 50 and 100 mg/kg
Administration: I.p.; once
Result: Caused a dose-related Straub tail, hypomotility, hypoventilation and piloerection.
