Biological descriptionNon-competitive AMPA and kainate receptor antagonist. (IC50 values for inhibition of AMPA-mediated responses in cells expressing human GluR1 and GluR4 are 6 and 5 µM, respectively). Analog of GYKI 52466 (ab120336). Anticonvulsant in vivo. At higher concentrations blocks GluK3 homomeric receptors (IC50 = 63 μM) and GluK2b(R)/GluK3 heteroreceptors (IC50 = 32 μM).
Also available in simple stock solutions (ab144499) - add 1 ml of water to get an exact, ready-to-use concentration.
Chemical name1-(4-Aminophenyl)-3-methylcarbamyl-4-methyl-3,4-dihydro-7,8-methylenedioxy-5H-2,3-benzodiazepine hydrochloride
Storage instructionsStore at +4°C. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in water to 100 mM and in DMSO to 100 mM
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
