Oxotremorine

Oxotremorine

Oxotremorine is a synthetic alkaloid and is a muscarinic agonist in that it will bind to muscarinic acetylcholine receptors. It is therefore a parasympathomimetic.

Specifically, oxotremorine is a non-selective muscarinic receptor agonist.

In addition, it also produces ataxia, tremor and spasticity, similar to those symptoms seen in Parkinsonism, and has thus become a research tool in experimental studies aimed at determining more effective anti-Parkinsonian drugs.
