AMPA Receptor (GluA2) - Pharmacology
The AMPA receptor (GluA2) was analyzed using different positive and negative allosteric modulators (CNQX, LY404187, LY395153, CP465022, Cyclothiazide). After activating the receptor by application of Glutamate, the modulating compound plus glutamate was applied afterwards. Measured on the SyncroPatch 384PE (a predecessor model of SyncroPatch 384), the whole cell patch methodology and multi-hole chips were used.
The lower images on the left hand side are displaying a screenshot of a current after application of the positive modulator LY404187. The EC50 was determined as 379 nM.
