The cyclobutylglycine (+/-)-2-amino-2-(3-cis and trans-carboxycyclobutyl-3-(9-thioxanthyl)propionic acid) (LY393053) has been identified as a functionally potent metabotropic glutamate receptor antagonist. It is most potent on the two group I metabotropic glutamate receptors, 1alpha and 5alpha, with IC50 values of 1.0+/-0.4 microM and 1.6+/-1.4 microM, respectively. In this study, LY393053 has also been evaluated electrophysiologically on native group I metabotropic glutamate receptors in an in… CONTINUE READING
