More recently, epibatidine, an alkaloid from the skin of the Ecuadorain tree frog Epipedobates tricolor, revealed another example of how a nicotinic agonist can produce toxic effects (111, 130). In addition to being a potent analgesic, when injected into mice at a relatively low dose (0.4 microg/mouse), this compound produced straub tail reaction. The major target of epibatidine is the alpha4beta2 high-affinity nAChR, although other nAChRs are targeted with various affinities (e.g., Ref. 507). PubMed:19126755
