Cholinomimetic activity of p, N- (3, 4-methylene dioxy phenyl) benzoic acid was revealed while studying its hypotensive activity in cats. Further evaluation of this activity showed that this com­pound had both muscarinic and nicotinic components. The cholino­mimetic activity was not similar to anticholinesterase like activity. Species variation was present; in rats it failed to show any activity and no activity was exhibited in vitro suggesting some metabolic transformation.
