Biological descriptionNegative allosteric mGlu5 modulator (IC50 = 61 nM). Inactive against mGlu1-4 and mGlu7-8. Centrally active and crosses the blood-brain barrier.
Storage instructionsStore at Room Temperature. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in DMSO to 25 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.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.

ab133477 staining GluR2 in SK-N-SH cells treated with VU 0360223 (ab120803), by ICC/IF. Decrease of GluR2 expression correlates with increased concentration of VU 0360223, as described in literature. The cells were incubated at 37°C for 6h in media containing different concentrations of ab120803 (VU 0360223) in DMSO, fixed with 4% formaldehyde for 10 minutes at room temperature and blocked with PBS containing 10% goat serum, 0.3 M glycine, 1% BSA and 0.1% tween for 2h at room temperature. Staining of the treated cells with ab133477 (1/200 dilution was performed overnight at 4°C in PBS containing 1% BSA and 0.1% tween. A DyLight 488 anti-rabbit polyclonal antibody (ab96899) at 1/250 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI and are shown in blue.
