General description

Rivastigmine tartrate is a cholinesterase inhibitor. It is also called as exelon.

Application

Rivastigmine tartrate has been used in cholinesterase inhibition assay.

Packaging

50 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Rivastigmine tartrate is used to treat Alzheimer′s disease. It helps to improve thinking ability. It helps to increase cholinergic function by inhibiting acetylcholinesterase.
Rivastigmine is an orally available, brain penetrant, reversible cholinesterase inhibitor that enhances cognitive function in patients with Alzheimer′s and Parkinson′s diseases. Rivastigmine inhibits both butyrylcholinesterase and acetylcholinesterase.

Acetylcholine Synthesis and Metabolism

Acetylcholine is synthesized from acetyl coenzyme A and choline by the enzyme choline acetyltransferase. In addition to its synthesis in the liver, choline employed in acetylcholine production is derived from dietary sources.
