SB-334867 is an orexin antagonist. SB-334867 was the first non-peptide antagonist developed that is selective for the orexin receptor subtype OX1, with around 50x selectivity for OX1 over OX2 receptors. It has been shown to produce sedative and anorectic effects in animals, and has been useful in characterising the orexinergic regulation of brain systems involved with appetite and sleep, as well as other physiological processes. Orexin antagonists have multiple potential clinical applications including the treatment of drug addiction, insomnia, obesity and diabetes.

How to use

In Vitro:

SB-334867 (100 pM– 10 μM) inhibits the orexin-A (10 nM) and orexin-B (100 nM)-induced calcium responses in a concentration-dependent manner, with apparent pKb values of 7.27±0.04 and 7.23±0.03, but has no effect on the calcium response elicited by UTP (3 μM), which activates an endogenous purinergic receptor in CHO-OX1 and CHO-OX2 cells.

In Vivo:

SB-334867 (intraperitoneal injection; 20 mg/kg; 20 days) administers 15 min before morphine injection can significantly decrease the effect of the morphine challenge dose in mice in comparison with the sporadically morphine-treated group. SB-334867 (intraperitoneal injection; 3, 10 and 30 mg/kg) significantly reduces ethanol intake relative to vehicle and does not effect water consumption in female P rats. SB-334867 (intraperitoneal injection; 3, 10 and 30 mg/kg) reduces ethanol consumption at the 30 mg/kg dose, high dose suppresses sucrose intake relative to vehicle, and it results in lower blood ethanol concentrations (BECs) relative to both the 10 and 30 mg/kg doses.
