Agmantine is a natural metabolite of the arginine. It binds to human adrenergic receptors and imidazoline (I) receptors. Agmatine acts as an antagonist of the NMDA receptor and nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. It is an antagonist of the serotonin receptor subtype 5-HT3 and blocks ATP-sensitive potassium channels. Agmatine competitively inhibits neuronal, macrophage, endothelial, and inducible nitric oxide synthase and irreversibly inactivates neuronal NOS in the presence of calmodulin.

Targets:Imidazoline 2 receptor; Nischarin; Spermine oxidase; alpha2-adrenergic receptor; Voltage-dependent N-type calcium channel subunit alpha-1B; Glutamate receptor ionotropic, NMDA 2D; Multidrug and toxin extrusion protein 1; Deoxyhypusine synthase; Ornithine decarboxylase; Nitric oxide synthase; Tumor necrosis factor α;
