Product Details

Biological Activity

Hexamethonium bromide is a nicotinic receptor (nAChR) blocker at autonomic ganglia; prevents nicotine-mediated inhibition of apoptosis. Induces changes in neuronal activity similar to the influences of glutamate in vitro. Inhibits nicotine-mediated induction of XIAP and survivin.
