Cat. No. 3490
Chemical Name: 2-Amino-5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-4-(4-met
Biological ActivitySelective non-substrate inhibitor of EAAT1 (IC50 values are 660, >300000 and >300000 nM for EAAT1, EAAT2 and EAAT3 respectively). Also demonstrates no significant inhibition at EAAT4 or EAAT5 in a patch-clamp electrophysiology assay (at final concentration up to 10 μM).
