Orally active, full agonist at 5-HT1A
receptors. Binds rat 5-HT1A
with high affinity (Ki
= 2.0 nM) and is > 300-fold selective over other 5-HT receptor subtypes (IC50
> 650 nM). Increases motoneuron survival and promotes effects of NGF on neurite outgrowth in vitro
. Displays neurotrophic activity in several neurodegenerative models in vivo
