Biological Activity

(-)-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 A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

For example, to modify the dose of Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 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 Compound A of 10 mg/kg.
