Chemical Name: (S)-1-(2-Amino-2-carboxyethyl)-3-(2-carboxybenzyl)pyrimidine-2,4-dione
Biological ActivityPotent and selective GluK1 (formally GluR5)-subunit containing kainate receptor antagonist (apparent KD = 402 nM); active enantiomer of UBP 296 (Cat. No. 2078). Displays ~ 260-fold selectivity over AMPA receptors, ~ 90-fold selectivity over recombinant human GluK2 (formally GluR6) and GluK5 (formally KA2)-containing kainate receptors and has little or no action at NMDA or group I mGlu receptors. Selectively blocks kainate receptor-mediated LTP induction in rat hippocampal mossy fibers. Also protects against soman-induced seizures and neuronal degeneration for up to 30 days when administered one hour after soman exposure.
