Cat. No. 1611
Chemical Name: 6-(2,3-Dichlorophenyl)-1,2,4-triazi
Biological ActivityAnticonvulsant. Inhibits glutamate release, possibly through inhibition of Na+, K+ and Ca2+ currents. Also blocks heterologously expressed and native α4β2 nAChRs with a similar affinity to Na+ channels. Water-soluble salt available (lamotrigine isethionate, Cat. No. 2289).
Licensing InformationSold for research purposes under agreement from GlaxoSmithKline
