Numerous naturally occurring and synthetic alpha-amino acids act as agonists on (S)-2-amino-3-(3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole) propionic acid (AMPA) receptors but nevertheless display significant differences in their functional properties and modes of interaction. The 5-substituted willardiines are a series of compounds that exhibit a range of affinities, act as partial agonists, and give rise to intermediate levels of activation and desensitization. However, the molecular basis for the… CONTINUE READING
