UCPH 101


Product overview

  • Name
    UCPH 101
  • Short description
    UCPH-101 is a potent, selective, non-competitive EAAT1 inhibitor
  • Biological description

    UCPH-101 is a potent, selective, non-competitive inhibitor of the EAAT1 (Excitatory Amino Acid Transporter 1) glutamate transporter (IC50 = 660 nM). UCPH-101 shows >400-fold selectivity for EAAT1 over EAAT2 and EAAT3 and shows no inhibitory activity at EAAT4 and EAAT5 in a patch-clamp electrophysiology assay (in which final concentration was up to 10 μM). UCPH-102 which is blood brain barrier permeable is now also available.
