PharmacodynamicsExtensive preclinical testing of BL-1020 has shown it to have a positive safety and pharmacokinetic profile. BL-1020 reduces dopamine activity while avoiding the side affects associated with unmitigated dopamine blockade. In animal models of schizophrenia, BL-1020 reduces behaviors characteristic of psychosis and causes minimal or no impairment of movement, the most severe side effect of classic antipsychotic drugs. Biochemical testing confirms that BL-1020 works via the mechanism previously established for classic antipsychotics. BL-1020 is structurally and mechanistically distinct from the atypical antipsychotics and is not anticipated to trigger diabetes or elevated cholesterol. Preliminary studies do not reveal toxicity.
Mechanism of actionIn radioligand binding studies, BL-1020 displayed strong interaction with dopamine receptors especially D2L and D2S (Ki of 0.27 nM and 0.17 nM respectively), the serotonin receptor 5-HY2a (Ki 0.25 nM) as well as moderate interaction with the GABAA receptor (Ki 3.29 microK).

General Function:
Virus receptor activity
Specific Function:
G-protein coupled receptor for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin). Also functions as a receptor for various drugs and psychoactive substances, including mescaline, psilocybin, 1-(2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodophenyl)-2-aminopropane (DOI) and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). Ligand binding causes a conformation change that triggers signaling via guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins) and modulates...
