Alzheimer’s disease (AD) involves selective loss of muscarinic m2, but not m1, subtype neuroreceptors in cortical and hippocampal regions of the human brain. Until recently, emission tomographic study of the loss of m2 receptors in AD has been limited by the absence of available m2-selective radioligands that can penetrate the blood-brain barrier. We now(More)
(R,S)-[125I]IQNB has been used extensively in in vivo studies in rats, and has been of utility in demonstrating the in vivo subtype selectivity of nonradioactive ligands in competition studies. Because of the implications for the study of Alzheimer's disease (AD), those ligands that demonstrate m2 selectivity are of particular interest. Radiolabelled Z- and(More)
