    Scopolamine Analysis Service

      Scopolamine, a tropane alkaloid derived from nightshade plants and honeysuckle, exhibits potent anticholinergic properties, functioning as an antagonist at muscarinic acetylcholine receptors. Metabolized in the body through hydrolysis by carboxylesterase into scopolamine and tropic acid, it undergoes further transformation by scopolamine dehydrogenase into tropine. The cytochrome P450 enzymes, especially the CYP3A subfamily, further oxidize it, producing metabolites like norhyoscine and dihydrohyoscine. These undergo subsequent glucuronidation or sulfation for excretion.


      The analysis of scopolamine and its metabolites is critical for comprehending its metabolism, assessing therapeutic efficacy, and ensuring safety. This process not only elucidates the pharmacological actions of scopolamine but also aids in refining treatment regimens and tailoring dosages to individual needs, enhancing both safety and effectiveness. Additionally, meticulous monitoring and metabolic profiling are essential for new drug development and the reevaluation of existing drugs.

      At MtoZ Biolabs, advanced liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) is utilized to quantitatively and qualitatively analyze scopolamine and its metabolites. This provides deep insights into its metabolic processes and potential interactions, supporting both research and clinical applications.
