Biological Activity for IEM 1460

IEM 1460 is a voltage-dependent open-channel blocker of AMPA receptors. Selective for GluR2 subunit-lacking (Ca2+-permeable) receptors over GluA2-containing receptors (IC50 values are 2.6 and 1102 μM, respectively). Selectively blocks fast spiking interneuron but not medium spiny projection neuron in mouse striatum. Also blocks NMDA receptor-mediated currents. Anticonvulsant in vivo.
