CAS#: Unknown

Description: VU0456940 is a potent M1 PAM with excellent selectivity (hM1 EC50 = 340 nM, 14-fold leftward shift of the ACh CRC; hM2–hM5 inactive). VU0456940 potentiated the excitation of a subthreshold concentration of CCh in MSNs. VU0456940 shifted APP processing and engaged the nonamyloidogenic pathway inducing the release of sAPPα in the presence of a 100 nm CCh dose (displayed no activity in the absence of CCh).
