Catalog Number: 2675
Chemical Name: N-[[[(1S)-1-Carboxy-3-methylbutyl]amino]carbonyl]-L-glutamic acid
Biological Activity
Potent inhibitor of glutamate carboxypeptidase II and III (GCP II and III/NAAG peptidase/NAALADase) (Ki values are 0.8 and 23 nM respectively) that inhibits the hydrolysis of NAAG (IC50 = 2.4 nM). Does not directly interact with NMDA or metabotropic glutamate receptors. Reduces neuronal degeneration in a rat model of� traumatic brain injury (TBI) and reduces locomotor activity in the PCP-model of schizophrenia.

Molarity Calculator
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution

The molarity calculator is based on the following equation:

Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) x Volume (L) x Molecular Weight (g/mol)
An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator:
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
