Application

Chlorpromazine hydrochloride has been used:
  • as an antagonists for calmodulin kinase
  • as a medium supplement to test its cytotoxic effects in human lung microvascular endothelial cells (HMVEC-L)
  • as an inhibitor of clathrin-mediated endocytosis in RAW 264.7 cells

Substitute for benzidine, o-dianisidine, and o-tolidine in the determination of microquantities of hemoglobin and peroxidase.

Packaging

Biochem/physiol Actions

Chlorpromazine demonstrates cytotoxic and antiproliferative activity against leukemic cells, but does not affect the viability of normal lymphocytes.
Phenothiazine antipsychotic; D2 dopamine receptor antagonist, H1 histamine receptor antagonist; inhibits calmodulin-dependent stimulation of cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase and nitric oxide synthase.
