Descriptor desipramina
Entry term(s) desmetilimipramina
Scope note: Dibenzacepina tricíclica que potencia la neurotransmisión. La desipramina bloquea selectivamente la recaptación de norepinefrina en los botones sinápticos, y también parece que dificulta el transporte de serotonina. Este compuesto posee, asimiismo, menor actividad anticolinérgica dada su afinidad por los receptores muscarínicos.

Scope note: A tricyclic dibenzazepine compound that potentiates neurotransmission. Desipramine selectively blocks reuptake of norepinephrine from the neural synapse, and also appears to impair serotonin transport. This compound also possesses minor anticholinergic activity, through its affinity to muscarinic receptors.
