Chemical Name: 1,4-Diazabicyclo[3.2.2]non-4-yl[5-[3-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]-2-furanyl]methanone hydrochloride
Biological ActivityHigh affinity α7 nAChR partial agonist (Ki = 1.1 nM in rat; Emax < 10% of the response to ACh in rat and human). Inhibits ACh (IC50 = 2.7 nM) at α7 nAChR. Reduces LPS-induced TNF-α release from microglia enriched cultures. Anti-inflammatory.
