Potent allosteric potentiator at the rat mGlu5
= 9 nM); binds to the MPEP
(Cat. No. 1212) allosteric site (Ki app
= 244 nM). Selective for mGlu5 over mGlu1
values are 557 nM and 1.51 μ
M for mGlu1
respectively). Potentiates both DHPG-induced LTP and threshold θ
-burst stimulation (TBS)-induced LTP in rat hippocampal slices. Analog of CDPPB
(Cat. No. 3235).
