Benztropine mesylate | Induces remyelination of neurons

Benztropine mesylate (132-17-2) is a centrally acting M1 muscarinic acetylcholine receptor antagonist (Ki=0.59 nM, rat).1 Also inhibits the dopamine transporter (Ki=160 nM).2 Benztropine mesylate enhances remyelination and significantly decreases clinical severity in the experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis model of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis alone or in combination with immunosuppressive agents.3 Inhibits hepatitis C virus infection.4
