Cat. No. 0896
Alternative Name: 5-MCA-NAT
Chemical Name: 5-Methoxycarbonylamino-N-acetyltryp
Biological ActivityBinds with high affinity to MT3 melatonin sites in hamster brain, and low affinity (and no efficacy) at MT1 and MT2 melatonin receptors and thus can be used to discriminate between the melatonin receptor subtypes.
