Chemical Name: (S)-1-(2-Amino-2-carboxyethyl)-3-(2-carboxy-5-phenylthiophene-3-yl-methyl)-5-methylpyrimidine-2,4-dione
Biological ActivityACET is a potent and selective GluK1 (formerly GluR5) containing kainate receptor antagonist (IC50 = 7 nM) that displays selectivity over GluK2 (formerly GluR6) containing kainate, NMDA, AMPA and group I mGlu receptors. Reversibly blocks induction of NMDA receptor-independent long term potentiation (LTP) in vitro at nanomolar concentrations.
