Chemical Name: (RS)-2-Amino-3-(3-hydroxy-5-tert-butylisoxazol-4-yl)propanoic acid
Biological ActivityATPA is a selective and potent GluK1 (formerly GluR5) kainate receptor agonist (Ki = 4.3 nM), inactive at GluK6 (formerly GluR6) (Ki > 1 mM) and only weakly active at AMPA receptors (GluA1-4) and the kainate receptors GluK5 (formerly KA-2) and GluK3 (formerly GluR7) (Ki values of 6 - 14 μM).
