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 demonstrate the in vivo m2 selectivity of an analog of (R)-QNB, 3-quinuclidinyl 2-(5-bromothienyl)-2-thienylglycolate (BrQNT), by dissection… CONTINUE READING
