6-Br-APB is a synthetic compound that acts as a selective dopamine receptor D1 agonist,[1] with the (R) enantiomer being a potent full agonist, while the (S) enantiomer retains its D1 selectivity but is a weak partial agonist.[2] (R)-6-Br-APB and similar D1-selective full agonists like SKF-81297 and SKF-82958 produce characteristic anorectic effects, stereotyped behaviour and self-administration in animals, with a similar but not identical profile to that of dopaminergic stimulant drugs such as amphetamine.[3][4][5]
