Excellent for blocking organic cation transport at 1 uM in rat aorta. However also acts as non-competitive antagonist of alpha-1 adrenoceptors. This is evidenced by the fact it can block vasoconstrictor responses induced by the alpha-1 adrenoceptor agonist phenylephrine in a non-competitive manner.
