Cat. No. 2728
Chemical Name: (S)-1-(2-Amino-2-carboxyethyl)-3-(2
Biological ActivityPotent and selective GluR5-containing kainate receptor antagonist (IC50 = 7 nM) that displays selectivity over GluR6-containing kainate, NMDA, AMPA and group I mGlu receptors. Reversibly blocks induction of NMDA receptor-independent long term potentiation (LTP) in vitro at nanomolar concentrations.
