Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: BF-1 is a selective antagonist of the 5-HT2B receptor, being investigated preclinically as an anti-migraine therapeutic . Because this compound lacks high affinities for other monoamine receptors it should have fewer monoanimergic side effects than reported for previously used and withdrawn 5-HT2B antagonists such as methysergide and pizotifen. BF-1 is the result of structural modification of the chemical scaffold of methixene, a compound with high affinity for 5-HT2A, 2B, 2C, histamine H1, adrenaline α1A and muscarinic M2 receptors .
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.✖
