Biological Activity for AMN 082 dihydrochloride

AMN 082 dihydrochloride is a the first selective mGlu7 agonist. Potently inhibits cAMP accumulation and stimulates GTPγS binding in recombinant cells and on membranes expressing mGlu7 (EC50 = 64 - 290 nM). Selective over other mGluR subtypes and selected ionotropic glutamate receptors up to 10 μM. Acts via a novel allosteric site and is orally active and brain penetrant. Reduces haloperidol-induced catalepsy in rats.

Test of potential modulation of 5HT-1B receptor effects.
By Sergiy Sylantyev on 12/10/2023
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Mouse
Cell Line/Tissue: Arcuate nucleus

AMN 082 was used to test a (potential) impact of metabotropic glutamate receptors on the effect of 5HT-1B receptors on neurotransmitter vesicle release in interneuronal synapse. Picture: membrane capacitance fluctuation of living neuron after series of electrical stimuli delivered to acute neural tissue. Left: control. Right: activation of metabotropic glutamate receptors (with 1 μM CHPG, 1 μM (RS)-3,5-DHPG and 1 μM AMN 082), GABA-B receptors and ACh receptors does not show a significant effect. Grey traces: individual recordings; red: averaged trace.
