An agonist is a chemical that binds to a receptor and activates the receptor to produce a biological response.
AL-38022A is an indazole derivative drug which is one of a range of similar drugs developed for scientific research and with some possible clinical applications.
The blood–brain barrier (BBB) is a highly selective semipermeable membrane barrier that separates the circulating blood from the brain and extracellular fluid in the central nervous system (CNS).
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases which result in damage to the optic nerve and vision loss.
Indazole, also called isoindazole, is a heterocyclic aromatic organic compound.
Intraocular pressure (IOP) is the fluid pressure inside the eye.
Lipophilicity (from Greek λίπος "fat" and φίλος "friendly"), refers to the ability of a chemical compound to dissolve in fats, oils, lipids, and non-polar solvents such as hexane or toluene.
Psilocin (also known as 4-HO-DMT, 4-hydroxy DMT, psilocine, psilocyn, or psilotsin) is a substituted tryptamine alkaloid and a serotonergic psychedelic substance.
Psychedelics are a class of drug whose primary action is to trigger psychedelic experiences via serotonin receptor agonism, causing thought and visual/auditory changes, and altered state of consciousness.
In biochemistry and pharmacology, a receptor is a protein molecule that receives chemical signals from outside a cell.
Ro60-0175 is a drug developed by Hoffmann–La Roche, which has applications in scientific research.
VER-3323 is a drug which acts as a selective agonist for both the 5-HT2B and 5-HT2C serotonin receptor subtypes, with moderate selectivity for 5-HT2C, but relatively low affinity for 5-HT2A.
YM-348 is an indazole derivative drug which acts as a potent and selective 5-HT2C receptor agonist, with an EC50 of 1nM and 15x selectivity over 5-HT2A, although it only has moderate selectivity of 3x over the closely related 5-HT2B receptor.
The mammalian 5-HT2A receptor is a subtype of the 5-HT2 receptor that belongs to the serotonin receptor family and is a G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR).
