CAS#: 409351-28-6

Description: VU0152100 is a highly selective M4 positive allosteric modulator (PAM) that exerts central effects after systemic administration. VU0152100 dose-dependently reverses amphetamine-induced hyperlocomotion in rats and wild-type mice, but not in M4 KO mice. VU0152100 also blocks amphetamine-induced disruption of the acquisition of contextual fear conditioning and prepulse inhibition of the acoustic startle reflex.
