olanzapine is an approved drug (EMA & FDA (1996))
Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Olanzapine displays affinity for numerous receptors from the serotonin, histamine, alpha adrenergic, dopamine and muscarinic acetylcholine receptor families. Its antipsychotic properties are believed to arise from its antagonism of the dopamine D2 and 5-HT2A receptors.
Marketed formulations may contain olanzapine pamoate (PubChem CID 12085238). Olanzapine is represented on some databases with some of the double bonds in a different position. See CHEBI:7735 and CHEMBL715.
Ligand Activity Visualisation Charts
These are box plot that provide a unique visualisation, summarising all the activity data for a ligand taken from ChEMBL and GtoPdb across multiple targets and species. Click on a plot to see the median, interquartile range, low and high data points. A value of zero indicates that no data are available. A separate chart is created for each target, and where possible the algorithm tries to merge ChEMBL and GtoPdb targets by matching them on name and UniProt accession, for each available species. However, please note that inconsistency in naming of targets may lead to data for the same target being reported across multiple charts.✖
