IUPAC name: (1R, 9S, 13E)- 1-Amino- 13-ethylidene- 11-methyl- 6-azatricyclo[7.3.1.02, 7] trideca- 2(7),
3, 10- trien- 5-one
Other names: HupA
Molecular formula: C15H18N2O
Molecular weight: 242.32
Melting point:217–219 celsius degree
Huperzine A can strongly inhibit acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine in the synaptic cleft. Acetylcholine is involved in memory and learning. By inhibiting the enzyme that breaks it down, more acetylcholine becomes available to stimulate neurons. Alzheimer's disease is a condition where there's a relative shortage of acetylcholine.
Function & Application:1. Huperzine A is many times more effective and selective than tacrine (a cholinesterase-inhibiting pharmaceutical drug) in inhibiting cholinesterase.
2. Huperzine A has also been found to be beneficial in patients with Alzheimer's disease.
3. Huperzine A is a phytonutrient that helps maintain proper memory function. It accomplishes this by slowing the breakdown of acetylcholine, a process that accelerates with aging. Acetylcholine plays a vital role in the cognitive function of the mind by enabling the delivery of messages from neuron to neuron in your brain.
