Biological Activity for Remacemide hydrochloride

Remacemide hydrochloride is an non-competitive NMDA receptor antagonist; blocks ion channel and allosteric modulatory site (IC50 = 8 - 68 mM). Remacemide hydrochloride is anticonvulsant in vivo and metabolizes to a more potent desglycine analog. Weakly blocks voltage-dependent Na+ channels (IC50 = 161 mM). In an animal model of Huntington's disease, extends survival and delays disease; this effect is more pronounced when combined with Coenzyme Q10 (Cat. No. 3003)
