Biological Activity

Eliprodil is a non-competitive NMDA receptor antagonist that acts at the polyamine modulatory site. Selective for GluN2B (formally NR2B)- over GluN2A (NR2A)- and GluN2C (NR2C)-containing receptors (IC50 values are 1, > 100 and > 100 μM respectively). Also σ1 ligand (Ki = 0.013 μM). Antagonizes neuronal voltage-gated Ca2+ channels and selectively inhibits the rapid component of the delayed rectifier K+ current (IKr). Neuroprotective.

Please refer to IUPHAR Guide to Pharmacology for the most recent naming conventions.

Evaluate the efficacity and the window of therapeutic opportunity of Eliprodil

Application: Species: Human

We studied the histological assessment of the volume of the traumatic brain lesion to estimate the extent of the structural damage. In the study, we have used this approach to evaluate the efficacity and the window of therapeutic opportunity of Eliprodil.
