Exciting advances have been made in the discovery of selective positive allosteric modulators of the metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR) mGluR5. These compounds may provide a novel approach that could be useful in the treatment of certain central nervous system disorders. However, because of their low potencies, previously described mGluR5 potentiators are not useful for functional studies in native preparations. In addition, binding sites at which these compounds act have not been… CONTINUE READING
