Safinamide mesylate salt may be used in cell signaling studies.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Safinamide is a highly selective and reversible monoamine oxidase type B (MAO-B) inhibitor that increases neostriatal dopamine concentration. In addition, safinamide is voltage-dependent sodium and calcium channel blocker. It appears to bind to the batrachotoxin-sensitive site 2 of the voltage-sensitive sodium channels. Safinamide blocks N and L-type calcium channels and inhibits glutamate and aspartate release from synaptic terminals.

Safinamide mesylate prevents dopamine reuptake and is effective in the treatment of epilepsy and Parkinson′s disease.
