N-Nitroso Duloxetine Impurity (Mixture of Diastereomer)

Also known as Duloxetine Nitroso Impurity, it is one of impurity present in Duloxetine, Duloxetine is a dual serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, Increased serotonin and norepinephrine concentrations lead to increased activation of 5-HT2, 5-HT3, and α1 adrenergic receptors. 5-HT2 and α1 are both Gq coupled and their activation increases the activity of the inositol phospholipase C (IP3/PLC) pathway.16 This pathway leads to the release of intracellular calcium stores, increasing intracellular calcium concentrations and facilitating neuronal excitability. 5HT3 functions as a ligand-gated sodium channel, which allows sodium to flow into the neuron when activated. The increased flow of sodium into the neuron contributes to depolarization and activation of voltage-gated channels.
