Application

2-Bromo-α-ergocryptine methanesulfonate salt has been used:
  • as D2 agonist in bird zebra finches
  • for Prl secretion inhibitor in mice
  • for the inhibition of motility in planaria worm

Biochem/physiol Actions

Bromocriptine is an ergot alkaloid and a dopamine D2 receptor agonist. It is prescribed for Parkinson′s disorder, hyperprolactinemia and galactorrhoea. It modulates β cells of the pancreas from insulin hypersecretion and improves the metabolic profile in type 2 diabetes patients with obesity. It also modulates glutamate release by glutamate transporter,GLT-1.

The role of dopamine receptor-G protein coupling in the development of striatal dopamine receptor supersensitivity was studied in rats with a 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced unilateral lesion of the nigrostriatal pathway. This coupling was assessed by the measurement of dopamine agonist-induced guanosine
