Use of NPS 2390 to isolate GABA-A receptor response.
By Anonymous on 09/17/2019
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Rat
Cell Line/Tissue: Cerebellum

NPS 2390 was used as a specific blocker of mGluR1 and mGluR5, to isolate pharmacologically response of GABA-A receptors. 10 microM of NPS 2390 in perfusion solution generated a full block of mGluR group I receptor activity, thus leaving a clear GABA-ergic response. Figure: single-channel openings of GABA-A receptor after application of NPS 2390.

Compound requires sonication to be dissolved.
