PNU 282987 | nAChR agonist

PNU 282987 (CAS 123464-89-1) is a selective α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) agonist (Ki = 26 nM).1  The a7 nAChR is a potential therapeutic target of cognitive deficits in diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, schizophrenia, and attention deficit disorders – agonism of this receptor with PNU 282987 has shown potential to ameliorate these deficits.2-5
