Nepicastat (SYN-117) HCl is a potent and selective inhibitor of dopamine-β-hydroxylase with IC50 values of 8.5 and 9.0 nM in bovine and human, respectively .
Dopamine-β-hydroxylase is an enzyme involved in the synthesis of small-molecule membrane-bound neurotransmitters. Dopamine-β-hydroxylase catalyses the synthesis of noradrenaline .
Nepicastat (SYN-117) HCl is a potent and selective dopamine-β-hydroxylase inhibitor. (R)-Nepicastat exhibited 2-3 fold less potent than nepicastat .
In beagle dogs and spontaneously hypertensive rats, nepicastat reduced noradrenaline in a dose-dependent way and increased dopamine and dopamine/noradrenaline ratio in cerebral cortex, left ventricle and the artery. In beagle dogs, nepicastat (2 mg/kg) significantly reduced noradrenaline by 52% and increased dopamine by 646% and dopamine/noradrenaline ratio in plasma . In pithed spontaneously hypertensive rats, nepicastat inhibited the pressor and positive chronotropic due to preganglionic sympathetic nerve stimulation. In spontaneously hypertensive rats, nepicastat (3 mg/kg) exhibited antihypertensive effects and reduced renal vascular resistance by 38% . In rats, nepicastat significantly increased extracellular dopamine accumulation induced by cocaine and amphetamine in the medial prefrontal cortex .
