(-)-Huperzine A is an Acetylcholinesterase inhibitor and NMDA receptor antagonist with an IC50 of 126 μM for NMDA-induced current. Huperzine A, is a naturally occurring sesquiterpene alkaloid compound found in the plant firmoss Huperzia serrata. The IC (50) values of huperzine A were neither altered by changing the concentrations of glycine (2-0.2 μM) and pH (7.4-6.7) in the external solution, nor by addition of Zn (2+) (5 μM) and dithiothreitol (5 mM) to the external solution.
|Animal models||Male Sprague-Dawley rats|
|Body Surface Area (m2)||0.007||0.025||0.15||0.05||0.02||0.5|
|Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by||Animal B Km|
|Animal A Km|
For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
