Cat. No. 2079
Chemical Name: (S)-1-(2-Amino-2-carboxyethyl)-3-(2
Biological ActivityPotent and selective GLUK5 (GluR5)-subunit containing kainate receptor antagonist (apparent KD = 402 nM); active enantiomer of UBP 296 (Cat. No. 2078). Displays ~ 260-fold selectivity over AMPA receptors, ~ 90-fold selectivity over recombinant human GLUK6- and GLUK2-containing kainate receptors and has little or no action at NMDA or group I mGlu receptors. Selectively blocks kainate receptor-mediated LTP induction in rat hippocampal mossy fibers. Also protects against soman-induced seizures and neuronal degeneration for up to 30 days when administered one hour after soman exposure.
