Synthesis and binding studies of epibatidine analogues as ligands for the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors.

Abstract

Neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) are transmembrane ligand-gated ion channels. Recent research demonstrated that selective nAChR ligands may have therapeutic potential in a number of CNS diseases and disorders. The alkaloid epibatidine is a highly potent non-opioid analgesic and nAChR agonist, but too toxic to be a useful ligand. To… (More)
