Biological Activity

Description Reserpine is an inhibitor of multidrug efflux pumps, used as an antipsychotic and antihypertensive drug. Reserpine is an inhibitor of the vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT2).
In vitro

Reserpine inhibits efflux pumps and reduces sparfloxacin, moxifloxacin and ciprofloxacin IC50s and MICs by up to four-fold in 11, 21 and 48 of the 102 unrelated clinical isolates tested. [1]

In vivo Reserpine (5 mg/kg s.c.) reduces extracellular DA levels to 4% of basal values in intact rats. Reserpine (5 mg/kg s.c.) diminishes L-DOPA (50 mg/kg i.p.)-induced increases in extracellular dopamine levels to 16% of those obtained in denervated animals not pretreated with reserpine in 6-hydroxydopamine-lesioned rats. [2] Reserpine causes a marked depletion of vasopressin/oxytocin-neu-rophysin-like immunoreactivity (LI) and CRH-L1 in the median eminence of the rat. [3] Reserpine significantly restores performance on the delayed response task in monkeys. Reserpine has little effect on performance of a visual discrimination task, a reference memory task which does not depend on the prefrontal cortex. [4] Reserpine injection (one dose of 1 mg/kg s.c.) every other day for 3 days causes a significant increase in vacuous chewing, tongue protrusion and duration of facial twitching in rats, compared to the control. Reserpine results in a decreased glutamate uptake in the subcortical parts of rats. [5] Reserpine (5 mg/kg) significantly increases vacuous jaw movements, and also reduces rearing behavior in all age groups of rats. [6]

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
