Reserpine: A Central Nervous System Depressant and an Inhibitor of Multidrug Efflux Pumps in Bacteria

Reserpine is an alkaloid of rauwolfia sharing the yohimbine [Y0002] pentacyclic skeleton. Pharmacological studies have revealed that reserpine is a central nervous system depressant. Reserpine depletes stores of catecholamines (dopamine [A0305], noradrenaline [A0906] and adrenaline [A0173]) and 5-hydroxytryptamine [S0370] by inhibiting their accumulation in many organs, including the brain and adrenal medulla. The depression of the central nervous system results in a decreased heart rate and a lowering of arterial blood pressure.
In addition, some studies have reported that reserpine enhances the in vitro activity of fluoroquinolones, such as norfloxacin [N0817], ciprofloxacin [C2227, C2510] and sparfloxacin [S0840], against strains of Staphylococcus aureus expressing distinct efflux-related multidrug resistance pumps.
