Highly potent and selective agonist at mGlu2 and mGlu3 receptors (EC50 values are 5.1 and 24.3 nM, respectively). Displays no agonist or antagonist activity at mGlu1a, mGlu5a, mGlu4 or mGlu7 receptors at concentrations up to 100 μM. Orally and systemically active. Anxiolytic and antiaddictive effects in vivo.
Store at +4°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Soluble in 1 eq. NaOH 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.
