Rasagiline mesylate | MAO-B inhibitor, neuroprotective

Rasagiline mesylate (161735-79-1) is a potent, irreversible monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor selective for MAO-B (IC50=4.43 nM) over MAO-A (IC50=412 nM).1 Parkinson’s disease therapeutic.2 Displays neuroprotective and neurorestorative properties in a Parkinson’s disease zebrafish model.3 Prevents α-synuclein-induced dopaminergic neuronal death and rescues TrkB neurotrophic signaling.4 Enhances BDNF levels and is neuroprotective in Parkinson’s disease models.5
