(+)-MK 801 maleate
Cat. No. 0924
Alternative Name: Dizocilpine
Chemical Name: (5S,10R)-(+)-5-Methyl-10,11-dihydro
Biological ActivityA potent, selective and non-competitive NMDA receptor antagonist. Acts by binding to a site located within the NMDA associated ion channel and thus prevents Ca2+ flux. An effective anti-ischemic agent in several animal models. Part of the Mixed NMDA Receptor Tocriset™. (-)-MK 801 maleate (Cat. No. 0955) also available.
