Chemical Name: (±)-4-Amino-5-chloro-N-[1-[(3R*,4S*)-3-(4-fluorophenoxy)propyl]-3-methoxy-4-piperidinyl]-2-methoxybenzamide
Biological ActivityCisapride is a 5-HT4 receptor agonist and gastrokinetic agent. Stimulates intestinal acetylcholine release, possibly via 5-HT4 receptor-dependent and -independent mechanisms, leading to increased intestinal motility.
