Beta-Alanine as a ligand of glycine receptors.
By Anonymous on 10/30/2019
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Human
Cell Line/Tissue: HEK-293

Glycine receptors of Alpha1+Beta subunit composition were expressed in HEK cells and then tested for functionality by beta-alanine application. As predicted, beta-alanine (1 mM) evoked a clear response, then fully blocked by strychnine (1 microM). Figure: response evoked by beta-alanine in a HEK-293 cell expressing glycine receptors.

Easily soluble compound, stable in water solution. Can be stored in fridge for months.
