SKF-81297

SKF-81297

SKF-81,297 is a synthetic drug of the benzazepine chemical class that acts as a selective dopamine D1/D5 receptor full agonist, and produces a characteristic stimulant-like pattern of anorexia, hyperactivity and self-administration in animals.[1] This profile is shared with several related drugs such as 6-Br-APB and SKF-82,958,[2] but not with certain other D1 full agonists such as A-77,636, reflecting functional selectivity of D1 activation.[3][4][5] Newer findings reveal that SKF-81,297 additionally acts as a partial agonist at D1-D2 receptor heteromers.[6]
