Overview

  • Product nameCinnabarinic acid
  • Description
    Endogenous mGlu4 selective agonist
  • Biological descriptionEndogenous selective mGlu4 agonist; generated by autoxidation of the tryptophan metabolite 3-hydroxyanthranilic acid. Activates mGlu4 receptors in transiently transfected HEK293 cells, and is devoid of activity on other mGlu receptor subtypes (mGlu1, 2, 5, 6, 7, and 8). Protects against NMDA-induced excitotoxic cell death.
  • Purity> 98%
