BW-723C86 is a tryptamine derivative drug which acts as a 5-HT2B receptor agonist. It has anxiolytic effects in animal studies,[1][2] and is also used for investigating the function of the 5-HT2B receptor in a range of other tissues.[3][4][5]

BW-723C86 is actually a mixed 5-HT2B / 5-HT2C agonist, and while it has good selectivity over 5-HT2A and other serotonin receptor subtypes, it has only around 3x selectivity for 2B over 2C and so is much less selective than most research ligands, but no superior 5-HT2B agonist was available until the potent and selective 5-HT2B activity of 6-APB was discovered in 2012.[6] Highly selective 5-HT2C antagonists are available however, and so a combination of BW-723C86 with a selective 5-HT2C antagonist allows 5-HT2B mediated responses to be studied in isolation.
