Sazetidine A (AMOP-H-OH) is a drug which acts as a subtype selective partial agonist at α4β2 neural nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, acting as an agonist at (α4)2(β2)3 pentamers, but as an antagonist at (α4)3(β2)2 pentamers.[1][2] It has potent analgesic effects in animal studies comparable to those of epibatidine, but with less toxicity,[3] and also has antidepressant action.[4]
