Biological Activity
Metabolite of clozapine. Activates human muscarinic designer receptors (DREADDs) in vitro. Silences hippocampal neurons expressing hM4 DREADDs in vitro. Activates Gs-linked DREADDS- AgRP in mice via intracerebroventricular (i.c.v) injection. Shown to be a P-glycoprotein (P-gp) efflux pump substrate. Other potent and selective hM3Dq DREADD agonists available: DREADD agonist 21 and Perlapine.

Water soluble salt also available.

This product contains 1 molar equivalent of ethanol.
