Product Description

AM-251 is a 123I radioisotope derivative of the CB1 cannabinoid receptor inverse agonist SR141716A, presenting a radioprobe for in vivo binding studies at the CB1 receptor with a higher affinity (Ki = 7.49 nM) for CB1 than the parent compound (Ki = 11.5 nM). AM-251 has been employed in competitive binding studies to identify CB1 affinity of different cannabimimetic agonists in vivo. Characterization of AM-251-CB1 association with SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography) has been described.
