alpha-Amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic Acid (AMPA) Summary

Description: An IBOTENIC ACID homolog and glutamate agonist. The compound is the defining agonist for the AMPA subtype of glutamate receptors (RECEPTORS, AMPA). It has been used as a radionuclide imaging agent but is more commonly used as an experimental tool in cell biological studies.

Also Known As: AMPA; alpha Amino 3 hydroxy 5 methyl 4 isoxazolepropionic Acid; AMPA, (+-)-Isomer; AMPA, (R)-Isomer; AMPA, (R)-Isomer, Monohydrobromide; AMPA, (S)-Isomer; AMPA, (S)-Isomer, Monohydrobromide; 4-Isoxazolepropanoic acid, alpha-amino-2,3-dihydro-5-methyl-3-oxo-
