Metabotropic glutamate receptor 2

Metabotropic glutamate receptor 2

Glutamate receptor, metabotropic 2, GluR2, also known as GRM2, is a human gene.


Subtype-selective potentiators

Although a number of group-II-selective (GluR2/3) ligands are known, ligands displaying high selectivity, including subtype-selectivity over GluR3, are currently rare (2008). Examples of subtype-selective ligands are the following allosteric potentiators. GluR2 potentiation is a new approach for the treatment of schizophrenia.

  • BINA: potent potentiator; modest direct agonist; robust in-vivo activity.
  • LY-487,379: devoid of orthosteric activity; along with related 3-pyridylmethylsulfonamides the first subtype-2-selective potentiator published (2003).
