Product overview

  • Name
  • Short description
    Competitive, selective, GluA2 (GluR2)-lacking AMPA receptor blocker
  • Biological description

    Competitive, selective, voltage-dependent open-channel Ca2+ permeable GluA2 (GluR2)-lacking AMPA receptor blocker (IC50 values are 2.6 and 1102 µM at GluA2-lacking and GluA2-containing AMPARs respectively).

    IEM-1460 can be utilized as an indicator of the distribution of AMPA receptor subtypes among populations of brain cells.

    IEM-1460 can also be used to selectively target GABAergic interneurons, as several subpopulations of these neurons express a significant proportion of GluA2-lacking Ca2+-permeable AMPARs.

    Blocks synaptic excitation of fast-spiking interneurons and blocks NMDAR-mediated currents.

    Also shows anticonvulsant properties.
