Description

Application

7,8-Dihydroxyflavone hydrate has been used as tropomyosin-receptor-kinase B (TrkB) agonist in mice and to inhibit TrkB for monitoring evoked excitatory postsynaptic currents (eEPSCs).

Packaging

10, 50 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

7,8-Dihydroxyflavone (7,8-DHF) may be used to help identify and differentiate the physiological effects and cell signaling pathways mediated by TrkB activation, such as those involving, memory, vasorelaxation and hypertension. 7,8-DHF elicits protection in scopolamine induced Alzheimer-like pathologic dysfunction.

7,8-Dihydroxyflavone is a selective tyrosine kinase receptor B (TrkB) receptor agonist. It manifests all the therapeutic effects of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF)—such as protecting neurons from apoptosis, inhibiting kainic acid-induced toxicity, decreasing infarct volumes in stroke, and neuroprotecting in an animal model of Parkinson′s disease—without the poor pharmacokinetic profile of BDNF limiting its therapeutic potential.
