threo Ifenprodil hemitartrate
Discontinued Productthreo Ifenprodil hemitartrate (Cat. No. 2892) has been withdrawn from sale for commercial reasons.
Biological Activity for threo Ifenprodil hemitartrate
threo Ifenprodil hemitartrate is a potent σ receptor agonist (Ki values are 59.1 and 2 nM for σ1 and σ2 receptors respectively) and GluN2B (formally NR2B) subunit-selective NMDA receptor antagonist (IC50 values are 0.22 and 324.8 μM at GluN2B and GluN2A respectively). Displays ~8-fold reduced affinity at α-adrenoceptors compared to Ifenprodil (Cat.No. 0545). Inhibits the hERG potassium channel (IC50 = 88 nM) and exhibits antiarrhythmic activity in vivo.

Major depressive disorder is characterized by depressed mood and a loss of interest and/or pleasure. Updated in 2015 this poster highlights presynaptic and postsynaptic targets for the potential treatment of major depressive disorder, as well as outlining the pharmacology of currently approved antidepressant drugs.
Huntington's Disease Poster
Huntington's disease (HD) is a severe monogenic neurodegenerative disorder, which is characterized by the prevalent loss of GABAergic medium spiny neurons (MSN) in the striatum. This poster summarizes the effects of mutant huntingtin aggregation implicated in the pathology of HD, as well as highlighting the use of iPSCs for HD modeling.
Learning & Memory Poster
Recognition memory enables us to make judgements about whether or not we have encountered a particular stimulus before. This poster outlines the cellular mechanisms underlying recognition memory and its links to long-term depression, as well as the use of pharmacological intervention to assess the role of neurotransmitters in recognition memory.
Parkinson's Disease Poster
Parkinson's disease (PD) causes chronic disability and is the second most common neurodegenerative condition. This poster outlines the neurobiology of the disease, as well as highlighting current therapeutic treatments for symptomatic PD, and emerging therapeutic strategies to delay PD onset and progression.
