(+/-)Epibatidine, [5,6-Bicycloheptyl-3H]-, 250µCi (9.25MBq)

(+/-)-Epibatidine radioligand tritiated at the 5,6-biocycloheptyl position. Epibatidine has analgesic activities, has been shown to function as an agonist at nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, and has been shown to bind muscarinic and serotonin 5-HT3 receptors.

  • 250 µCi quantity of (+/-)Epibatidine, [5,6-Bicycloheptyl-3H]-, is available for your research. Epibatidine is a high affinity agonist of nicotonic acetylcholine receptors and has also been shown to bind muscarinic receptors. These receptors are part of a group of acetylcholine G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) found in the central and peripheral nervous system that play a role in neuotransmission. Epibatidine functions as an analgesic at nicotinic receptors.

    We offer both agonist and antagonist radioligands for autoradiographic visualization or performing saturation and competition assays to determine receptor expression levels (Bmax), dissociation constants (Kd), association and dissociation rates (kon and koff), and inhibitor constants (Ki) for a variety of receptors. We develop our radioligands to the highest specific activity possible and provide high purity resulting in low non-specific binding products. Each of our ultra-pure radioligands is fully characterized for pharmacological action and validated in receptor binding assays.

    Radiolabeled ligands remain the most sensitive method for probing receptor binding biology; yielding unprecedented sensitivity gives results that technicians and scientists can trust. For over 50 years, Revvity has been a leading supplier of New England Nuclear (NEN) radiochemicals, liquid scintillation cocktails, vials and nuclear counting detection instruments.
