Description of biological activity

The compound is highly potent agonists for group 2/3 metabotropic glutamate receptors mGluR. (EC50 = 0.055 ± 0.017 μM for group 2 mGluR in the rat cerebral cortical slice preparation, suppression of forskolin-stimulated cAMP formation) possessing no activity at other glutamate receptor sites at concentrations up to 100 μM. Importantly, the mGluR agonist effects of the compound are evident following oral administration in mice in both the elevated plus maze model of anxiety (ED50 = 0.5 mg/kg) and in the ACPD-induced limbic seizure model (ED50 = 45.6 mg/kg) [J. Med. Chem. 1997, 40, 528-537]. mGlu2/3 receptors are targets for the treatment of anxiety, schizophrenia, convulsive disorders, Parkinson’s disease, pain, and neurodegeneration.
