RU-24,969 is a drug and research chemical widely used in scientific studies. It is a selective agonist at the 5-HT1A and 5-HT1B receptors, with preference for the latter.[1] As with other 5-HT1B agonists such as CP-94,253, RU-24,969 has been found to increase the reinforcing properties of cocaine, suggesting a role for 5-HT1B receptors in cocaine addiction.[2]
