Donepezil(E 2020) is a specific and potent AChE inhibitor for bAChE and hAChE with IC50 of 8.12 nM and 11.6 nM, respectively.
Donepezil is a specific and potent AChE inhibitor for bAChE and hAChE with IC50 of 8.12 nM and 11.6 nM , respectively . Donepezil inhibits the carbachol-stimulated increase in intracellular Ca2+ concentration in human SHSY5Y neuroblastoma cells in a concentration dependent manner, indicating that Donepezil have muscarinic antagonist activity. Intraperitoneal administration of Donepezil in rats produces a dose dependent increase in salivation and tremor, which are overt cholinergic behavioural signs, with an ED50 of 6 μmol/kg. Donepezil is found to be somewhat less potent with a ED50 of 50 μmol/kg following oral administration . A recent study shows that Donepezil can protect human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) against H2O2-induced cell injury. This may be useful as a potential therapy for oxidative stress in cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases .
