Ditolylguanidine is a sigma receptor agonist.[1] It is selective for sigma receptors, but non-selective between the two sigma receptor subtypes, binding to both σ1 and σ2 with equal affinity.[2] It has neuroprotective[3] and antidepressant effects,[4] and potentiates the effects of NMDA antagonists.[5]
