Baogongteng A (BGT-A), a naturally occurring tropane muscarinic agonist isolated from Chinese medicinal plant, exhibits a bioactive effect different from those of many tropane alkaloids that are muscarinic antagonists. A series of racemic derivatives of BGT-A was synthesized to study the structure-activity relationships (SAR). To explore further the SAR in(More)
The relationship between muscarinic receptor affinity states and the contractile response to the muscarinic agonists carbachol, aceclidine, and pilocarpine, has been examined in the isolated rabbit iris muscle. Contraction of the iris muscle by carbachol and aceclidine was more potent and/or more efficacious than the response to pilocarpine. Analysis of(More)
