Description: Danavorexton, also known as TAK 925, is an orexin receptor agonist. TAK-925 activated human recombinant OX2R with 50% effective concentration value of 5.5 nM, and showed >5,000-fold selectivity over OX1R in calcium mobilization assays. TAK-925 induced OX2R-downstream signals similar to those displayed by orexin peptides in Chinese hamster ovary cells stably expressing human OX2R. In an electrophysiological study, TAK-925 activated physiological OX2R on histaminergic neurons in the mouse tuberomammillary nucleus (TMN). Subcutaneous (SC) administration of TAK-925 also modulated neuronal activity in various brain regions, including TMN, as measured by an immunohistochemical analysis using an anti-c-fos antibody. TAK-925 (SC) increased wakefulness in wild-type mice, but not in OX2R KO mice, during their sleep phase, demonstrating that a highly selective OX2R agonist can increase wakefulness in mice via OX2R activation. TAK-925 may have therapeutic potential to reduce hypersomnia in multiple disorders including NT1.
