SB 206553 hydrochloride
Chemical Name: 3,5-Dihydro-5-methyl-N-3-pyridinylbenzo[1,2-b:4,5-b']dipyrrole-1(2H)-carboxamide hydrochloride
Biological ActivityPotent and selective 5-HT2B/5-HT2C receptor antagonist (rat 5-HT2B pA2 = 8.89, human 5-HT2C pKi = 7.92). Displays > 80-fold selectivity over all other 5-HT receptor subtypes and a variety of other receptors (pKi < 6). Centrally active following oral administration in vivo.

We assessed the effect of SB-206553 (2.0 mg/kg, s.c.) on dorsal striatal single-unit electrophysiology following MDMA (ecstasy; 5.0 mg/kg) administration. A coefficient-of-variation analysis indicated significantly less variability in the magnitude of both MDMA-induced neuronal excitations and inhibitions in rats that were pretreated with SB-206553 compared to vehicle (shown in figure).
