Applications

(-)-Cotinine is used to activate a subpopulation of α3/ α6β2 nAChRs in monkey striatum. It binds nicotinic- and muscarinic-type acetylcholine receptors with minimal receptor desensitization and demonstrates antipsychotic drug-like properties in behavioral models, neuroprotective properties in neurodegenerative disease models, and enhances attention in a delayed matching-to-sample task.

Notes

Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Recommended storage temperature is 2 - 8°C.
