SB-408124 is a elective non-peptide orexin OX1 receptor antagonist (Kb values are 21.7 and 1405 nM for human OX1 and OX2 receptors respectively). A critical role for the orexin-1 receptor (OX1R) in complex emotional behavior is emerging, such as overactivation of the OX1R pathway being associated with panic or anxiety states.

How to use
SB-408124 binds hypocretin type 1 receptor (HcrtR1) with pKi values of 7.57. Calcium mobilization studies shows that SB-408124 is a functional antagonist of the OX1 receptor with a affinity of approximately 50-fold selectivity over the OX2 receptor. A recent study indicates that pretreatment of primary cultures of rat astrocytes with SB-401824 before Orexin A administration significantly reduced the stimulatory action of Orexin A on both basal and forskolin-acivated cAMP production.
SB-408124 (30 μg/10 μL, administered intracerebroventricularly) decreases Orexin-A induced water intake in Wistar rats. Intracerebroventricularly administered Orexin-A (30 μg/10 μL) blocks the vasopressin (VP) level increase induced by either histamine or 2.5% NaCl administration, and this blocking effect is moderated by pretreatment with SB-408124. Intracerebroventricular pretreatment with SB-408124 (50 mM, 5 μL/h) prevents Bicuculline (BIC)-induced increases in endogenous glucose production (EGP).
