Comparative study on pharmacokinetics of a series of anticholinergics, atropine, anisodamine, anisodine, scopolamine and tiotropium in rats

Preclinical data on the series of anticholinergics is provided, which may be used to explain the clinical adverse effects and applications and to compare the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic characteristics of the agents.

Comparative study on pharmacokinetics of a series of anticholinergics, atropine, anisodamine, anisodine, scopolamine and tiotropium in rats

This work provided relatively comprehensive preclinical data on the series of anticholinergics, which may be used to explain the clinical adverse effects and applications.

Amide alkaloids from Scopolia tangutica.

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.

Neuroprotective effects of polygalacic acid on scopolamine-induced memory deficits in mice.

Peripheral cholinoceptor antagonist anisodamine counteracts cholinergic adverse effects and facilitates cognitive amelioration of rivastigmine

Concomitant administration of anisodamine effectively counteracted both the muscarinergic and nicotinergic adverse effects, while facilitating cognitive amelioration of rivastigmine (3.25 mg/kg).

Possible role for anisodamine in organophosphate poisoning

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.

Muscarinic acetylcholine receptor modulators derived from natural toxins and diverse interaction modes

This review focuses on various mAChRs modulators derived from natural toxins on the basis of the receptor-ligand interaction modes and the understanding of the affinity, the intrinsic efficacy, and the selectivity may lead to the discovery of new drug leads for the treatment of diseases related to mA ChRs.

The pharmacological properties of anisodamine

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.

Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics in Clinical Use of Scopolamine

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.

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.

Comparison of the Inhibitory Efficacy of Four Belladonna Drugs on Gastrointestinal Movement and Cognitive Function in Food-Deprived Mice

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.

[3H]pirenzepine and (-)-[3H]quinuclidinyl benzilate binding to rat cerebral cortical and cardiac muscarinic cholinergic sites. I. Characterization and regulation of agonist binding to putative muscarinic subtypes.

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.

[3H]pirenzepine and (-)-[3H]quinuclidinyl benzilate binding to rat cerebral cortical and cardiac muscarinic cholinergic sites. II. Characterization and regulation of antagonist binding to putative muscarinic subtypes.

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.
