Bioactivity Comments
Many of the tetrahydroisoquinolinium class of neuromuscular blocking agents are associated with histamine release following bolus administration, with outward symptoms including short-lived cutaneous flushing. Transient hypotension and reflex tachycardia may occur.
Note that we have mapped this drug to the relevant α subunit of the experimentally tested nACh receptor complexes [3].
