Description of biological activity

Potent NMDA receptor agonist. The compound is a very potent agonist, approximately 20 times more active than NMDA at NMDA receptors, while the corresponding cis isomer was 1/3 as potent as NMDA. Selectivity over different glutamate binding (NR2) subunits of the receptor (NR2A-D) has been identified [3]; in an essay (two-electrode voltage-clamp recordings of X. laevis oocytes coexpressing the NR1 subunit together with the NR2A, NR2B, NR2C, or NR2D subunit), the EC50 were determined to be correspondingly 3.06 μmol/l, 0.995 μmol/l, 1.15 μmol/l, and 0.512 μmol/l.
