Cat. No. 0188
Chemical Name: (L)-(+)-α-Amino-3,5-dioxo-1,2,4-oxad
Biological ActivityGlutamate receptor agonist acting at AMPA receptors and metabotropic glutamate receptors positively linked to phosphoinositide hydrolysis. Sensitizes neurons in hippocampus to depolarization by L-AP6 (the so called 'quis' effect). Also available as part of the Group I mGlu Receptor Tocriset™.
