Biological Activity

Demonstrates high affinity for the kainate receptor subtype hGluK1 (formerly hGluR5) (Ki = 0.24 nM) and 600-4000-fold selectivity over both the AMPA receptor subtypes and the homomeric kainate receptor hGluK2 (formerly hGluR6).

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