Cat. No. 1625
Alternative Name: 3,3'-Difluorobenzaldazine
Chemical Name: [(3-Fluorophenyl)methylene]hydrazone-3-fluorobenzaldehyde
Biological ActivityNovel allosteric potentiator of the metabotropic glutamate receptor mGlu5. Devoid of agonist activity itself, but potentiates (3 - 6-fold) the action of agonists at mGlu5 without any effect at other mGlu subtypes (EC50 for potentiation = 2 - 5.3 μM).
