18-Methoxycoronaridine(cas 308123-60-6), also known as 18-MC, is a nicotinic α3β4 antagonist potentially for the treatment of cocaine abuse. 18-Methoxycoronaridine slows the rate of induction of behavioral sensitization to nicotine. The primary mechanism of action of 18-MC is believed to be the inhibition of α3β4 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors which are densely expressed in the medial habenula and interpeduncular nucleus. 18-Methoxycoronaridine has also been shown to attenuate sucrose reward, decrease sucrose intake and prevent the development of sucrose-induced obesity.
