Stable photoreleaser of L-glutamate
5785 | MDNI-caged-L-glutamate

Rapidly and efficiently releases glutamate (Cat. No. 0218) when photolysed (350 - 365 nm excitation). Water soluble and stable at neutral pH, and pharmacologically inactive at neuronal glutamate receptors (up to 200 μM). 5.5 times more photosensitive than MNI-caged L-glutamate (Cat. No. 1490). Laser activation of MDNI-glu evokes a rapid increase in intracellular Ca2+ concentration in astrocytes.
