Two naturally occurring tropane alkaloids, anisodamine and scopolamine, structurally dissimilar in one OH group, are well established as muscarinic acetylcholine receptor (mAChR) antagonists in clinic and basic research. However, experimental evidence for central effects of anisodamine is limited and conflicting compared with that of scopolamine. In the present study, Morris water maze test, long-term potentiation (LTP) recording and receptor radioligand binding assays were used to explore the… Expand
Comparative study on pharmacokinetics of a series of anticholinergics, atropine, anisodamine, anisodine, scopolamine and tiotropium in rats
The compound series of traditional anticholin- ergics (atropine (Atr), anisodamine (Ani), anisodine (AT3), and scopolamine (Sco)), naturally occurring belladonna alkaloid, have been approved forExpand
Comparative study on pharmacokinetics of a series of anticholinergics, atropine, anisodamine, anisodine, scopolamine and tiotropium in rats
TLDR
This work provided relatively comprehensive preclinical data on the series of anticholinergics, which may be used to explain the clinical adverse effects and applications. Expand
Hydroxycinnamic acid amides from Scopolia tangutica inhibit the activity of M1 muscarinic acetylcholine receptor in vitro.
TLDR
These findings provided a molecular explanation for the traditional use of S. tangutica against spasm since blockade of parasympathetic nerve impulse transmission through the inhibition of the M1 receptor lessens smooth muscle spasms. Expand
Amide alkaloids from Scopolia tangutica.
TLDR
The present study represents the first recognition of hydroxycinnamic acid amides containing putrescine or spermidine in S. tangutica and exhibited moderate agonist activity at the µ-opioid receptor. Expand
Neuroprotective effects of polygalacic acid on scopolamine-induced memory deficits in mice.
TLDR
The results suggest that PA might exert a significant neuroprotective effect on cognitive impairment, driven in part by the modulation of cholinergic activity and neuroinflammation. Expand
Peripheral cholinoceptor antagonist anisodamine counteracts cholinergic adverse effects and facilitates cognitive amelioration of rivastigmine
TLDR
Concomitant administration of anisodamine effectively counteracted both the muscarinergic and nicotinergic adverse effects, while facilitating cognitive amelioration of rivastigmine (3.25 mg/kg). Expand
Possible role for anisodamine in organophosphate poisoning
TLDR
The anticholinergic and additional activities of anisodamine appear to be relevant and justify its consideration as an addition to the existing remedies for organophosphate poisoning, but more research is needed, as at present data are limited. Expand
Quercetin and rutin prevent scopolamine-induced memory impairment in zebrafish
TLDR
Investigation of the potential protective role of quercetin and rutin against scopolamine-induced inhibitory avoidance memory deficits in zebrafish contributes to the increase of the knowledge about plant compounds applicability as medicines to prevent and treat neurodegenerative diseases, like Alzheimer's disease. Expand
Protective effects of anthocyanins on the ectonucleotidase activity in the impairment of memory induced by scopolamine in adult rats.
TLDR
The results show that scopolamine may affect purinergic enzymatic cascade or cause alterations in energy metabolism inducing loss of memory, and Antho could reverse these changes, suggesting a neuroprotective effect of Antho on ectonucleotidase activities and neuronal energetic metabolism. Expand

The pharmacological properties of anisodamine
TLDR
Experimental evidence implicates anisodamine as an anti‐oxidant that may protect against free radical‐induced cellular damage and its cardiovascular properties include depression of cardiac conduction and the ability to protect against arrhythmia induced by various agents. Expand
Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics in Clinical Use of Scopolamine
TLDR
Scopolamine has been shown to undergo an oxidative demethylation during incubation with CYP3A (cytochrome P-450 subfamily), and the glucuronide conjugation of scopolamine could be the relevant pathway in healthy volunteers. Expand

TLDR
Compared with the avoidance-memory deficit,The avoidance-learning deficit caused by belladonna alkaloids is more preferentially attenuated by tacrine, which did not antagonize the memory deficit elicited by Sco and Atr 50 mumol.kg-1. Expand
Differentiating effects of anisodamine on cognitive amelioration and peripheral muscarinic side effects induced by pilocarpine in mice
TLDR
It is shown that muscarinic agonist pilocarpine (pilo) could significantly improve memory deficits induced by scopolamine in step-through task, but be accompanied by pronounced peripheral cholinergic side effects such as hypersalivation, bradycardia, diarrhea and so on. Expand
Comparison of the Inhibitory Efficacy of Four Belladonna Drugs on Gastrointestinal Movement and Cognitive Function in Food-Deprived Mice
TLDR
The relative susceptibility of the mouse’s tissue or function capacities towards the inhibitory effects of belladonna drugs is small intestine > stomach >avoidance-response memory > avoidance-response learning > open-field memory. Expand

TLDR
The binding and regulation of selected muscarinic agonists to putative subtypes in rat cerebral cortex and heart were studied and carbachol and acetylcholine showed significant selectivity for putative M2 sites. Expand
Ethological analysis of scopolamine treatment or pretreatment in morphine dependent rats
TLDR
It is suggested that scopolamine has significant actions in the treatment of opiate addiction, which might result from increasing morphine excretion from urine. Expand

TLDR
Kinetic studies confirmed high affinity Kd values seen in steady-state assays and inhibition studies of selected muscarinic antagonists showed antagonists generally had higher affinity in 10 mM Na-K-phosphate buffer, were insensitive to guanyl-5'-yl imidodiphosphate and had Hill values nearly equal to one.

Endogenous acetylcholine lowers the threshold for long‐term potentiation induction in the CA1 area through muscarinic receptor activation: in vivo study
TLDR
The results suggest that the cholinergic drive to the hippocampus is critically involved in the control of the LTP induction threshold in vivo, and the septo‐hippocampal cholinergy regulation of synaptic plasticity may constitute an important target for the treatment of cognitive disorders associated with ACh deficits.
