A-77636 is a synthetic compound that acts as a selective dopamine receptor D1 agonist.[1] It has nootropic, anorectic, rewarding and antiparkinsonian effects in animal studies,[2][3][4][5][6] but its high potency and long duration of action causes D1 receptor downregulation and tachyphylaxis,[7][8][9] and unlike other D1 full agonists such as SKF-82958, it does not produce place preference in animals.[10] A-77636 partially substituted for cocaine in animal studies, and has been suggested for use as a possible substitute drug in treating addiction,[11] but it is better known for its use in studying the role of D1 receptors in the brain.[12][13][14]
