Catalog Number: 4415
Chemical Name: 7-Cyclobutyl-3-(2,6-difluorophenyl)-6-[(1-methyl-1H-1,2,4-triazol-5-yl)methoxy]-1,2,4-triazo[4,3-b]pyridazine
Biological Activity
Subtype-selective GABAA partial agonist (Ki values are 0.21, 0.22, 0.23 and 0.40 for α3, α1, α5 and α2 respectively); occupies the benzodiazepine site of GABAA receptors. Displays greater agonist efficacy at α3 compared to α1. Exhibits anxiolytic and non-sedating properties in rodent models. Brain penetrant.
