Description

Arecoline Hydrobromide (Arecoline HBr) is a betel nut alkaloid. It is an agonist of both muscarinic and nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Because it is a parasympathomimetic drug, it has been used as a euphoriant and shown to improve memory and learning ability. It may prove to be useful in treating dementia. It is also reported cytotoxic for endothelial cells and fibroblasts.

It has shown to activate critical genes related to β-cell regeneration, such as pancreatic and duodenal homeobox 1(pdx-1) and glucose transporter 2(GLUT-2) in rats. It can thus be believed that arecoline is effective in improving the detrimental effects caused by insulin deficiency in rats with type 1 diabetes. 


Applications

• Parasympathomimetic drug

• Cancer treatment

• Diabetes management

• Veterinary practices

USE
Arecoline HBr is a covalent inhibitor of ACAT1 which binds to ACAT1 tetramers, but not to ACAT2 and DLAT. Study of mice with Arecoline HBr has resulted in a dose-dependent reduction in tumor mass. As it also seems to be effective in improving learning ability, it is suggested as a treatment of Alzheimer's disease possibly due to its carcinogenic properties.
