Catalog Number: 1586
Chemical Name: 8-Bromo-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-3-methyl-5-phenyl-1H-3-benzazepin-7-ol hydrobromide
Biological Activity
Potent and selective D1-like dopamine receptor antagonist (Ki~ 0.56 nM for D1; KB = 2 μM for D2). Also antagonist at the vascular 5-HT2 receptor (Ki = 11 nM). Displays selective inhibition of adenylyl cyclase 2 (AC2); inactive against AC1 or AC5. Centrally active following systemic administration in vivo.
