Inhibits butyrylcholinesterase

Overview

Pteryxin is a dihydropyranocoumarin derivative that potently inhibits butyrylcholinesterase (IC50 = 12.96 μM; Orhan et al.). Butyrylcholinesterase is involved in the regulation of acetylcholine in the brain, and its activity level is higher in patients with Alzheimer's disease (Greig et al.). Butyrylcholinesterase inhibitors have been implicated as lead compounds for developing treatment for Alzheimer's disease (Orhan et al.).
