Agonist Comments
Binding affinity is lost with removal of amino acids 1 and 2 of galanin [6]. Galanin(D-Trp2) has a higher binding affinity for GAL2 receptor than GAL1 receptor.
In [58], affinities are given for both membrane binding assays and whole cell binding assays. Two populations of binding sites (larger population of low affinity/ smaller population of higher affinity) are identified in [18].

In [8] and [41] many different galanin analogues were trialled. The most active compounds are reported here. The Ki values of other analogues are listed in these publications. In [47] a series of 2,4,6-triaminopyridimines analogs were tested and found to have IC50 values in the range 300-100nM.

NOTE that compounds with -ve log10 affinities <6 have no appreciable agonist function.
