Cat. No. 2217
Chemical Name: (±)-3-Hydroxy-4,5,6,6a-tetrahydro-3a
Biological ActivityPotent, non-competitive excitatory amino acid transporter (EAAT) blocker. Preferentially inhibits glutamate-induced [3H]D-aspartate release (IC50 = 1.6 μM) rather than [3H]L-glutamate uptake (IC50 = 18 μM). Moderately selective; displays no affinity for NMDA and metabotropic glutamate receptors, and low affinity for AMPA and kainate receptors (IC50 values are 43 and 8 μM respectively). .
