It is most often used to study the role of SR-3. Studies suggest the blockade of SR-3 with may ameliorate beta-amyloid protein-induced neurotoxicity by interfering with the increase of Ca2+, and then by inhibiting glutamate release, generation of reactive oxygen species and caspase-3 activity. It is also used in the study of dopamine elevation in rats due to cocaine and amphetamine consumption.
