Cat. No. 0768
Chemical Name: 2-Amino-6-trifluoromethoxybenzothia
Biological ActivityNovel psychotropic agent with anticonvulsant, hypnotic, anxiolytic, anti-ischemic and anesthetic properties. Inhibits glutamate release from presynaptic terminals and increases Na+-dependent glutamate uptake in rat cortical synaptosomes. Blocks voltage-dependent Na+ channels and inhibits GABA uptake by striatal synaptosomes; neuroprotective.
