Caged glutamate that rapidly and efficiently releases glutamate when photolysed
Caged glutamate that rapidly and efficiently releases glutamate when photolysed (300 - 380 nm excitation).
Peak absorption is at 340 nm, the quantum yield is 0.085 and photo release following a light pulse has a half-time of 200 ns.
MNI-caged-L-Glutamate is inactive at glutamate receptors and transporters at mM concentrations but does interfere with synpatic activation of GABAA receptors (IC50 = ~0.5 mM).
MNI-caged-L-Glutamate is water soluble, resistant to hydrolysis and stable at neutral pH.

Storing and Using Your Product
-20 °C (protect from light)
Soluble in water (50mM) with gentle warming
- This compound is light sensitive; exposure to light may affect compound performance. We therefore recommend storing the material in the dark and protecting from light.
- Although stable to hydrolysis and soluble in water (50 mM) it is often necessary to warm stock solutions after thawing.
This product is for RESEARCH USE ONLY and is not intended for therapeutic or diagnostic use. Not for human or veterinary use.

Reviews & Product Guides
We are very happy with the quality and price of the MNI-caged-L-glutamate (MNI-Glu) from Hello Bio.
We are currently using the compound to study dendritic integration, by uncaging MNI-Glu on multiple dendritic spines of hippocampal cells in acute brain slices. We are very excited about the potential results.
Experiments using MNI-Glu are more often very expensive, especially if one chooses to apply the compound in the bath in order to have a more stable and homogenous concentration. We are very pleased to have such a company like yours that offers products like MNI-caged-L-glutamate at a very good price and still with a high quality.
So we will rate your product 5 stars!
