Papaverine is an opium alkaloid that is structurally and pharmacologically distinct from opiates. At the cellular level, papaverine inhibits phosphodiesterase activity (IC50 = 13 μM).1 Through this action, it increases cellular cAMP levels and alters cellular function. It has been shown to reduce arterial and cerebral vasospasm2,3 and has been used to treat erectile dysfunction.4,5 Papaverine is recommended as a potent nonselective phosphodiesterase inhibitor for in vitro and in vivo research purposes.
