Biochem/physiol Actions

N,N-Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) functions as a hallucinogen. Experimental studies states that DMT is an endogenous sigma-1 receptor agonist. DMT interacts with sigma-1 receptors and blocks voltage-gated sodium ion (Na+) channels in both native cardiac myocytes and heterologous cells that contain sigma-1 receptors.
N,N-Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is a hallucinogen now known to be an endogenous sigma-1 receptor agonist. In keeping with the known sigma-1 receptor modulation of voltage gated Na+ channels, DMT was found to reversibly inhibit Na currents by 62% in vitro. N,N-Dimethyltryptamine also induced hypermotility in WT mice (but not in sigma-1 KO mice), all evidence of its sigma-1 agonist activity.
