Product overview

  • Name
    (S)-MCPG
  • Short description
    Non-selective group I/II mGluR antagonist
  • Biological description

    Non-selective group I and II mGluR antagonist. Water soluble sodium salt.

    Active enantiomer of (R,S)-MCPG.


    Displays slight activity at mGlu8 receptor but none at mGlu4 receptor.

    Inhibits MF-LTP (mossy fiber long term potentiation) and blocks induction of LTP in CA1 of rat hippocampus.


    Water soluble (R,S)-MCPG sodium salt and (S)-MCPG sodium salt also available.
