MedKoo CAT#: 526781

CAS#: 433967-28-3

Description: VU0357121 is a positive allosteric modulator of mGlu5 receptors (EC50 = 33 nM). Mutagenesis studies indicate that VU0357121 and related analogues bind to a yet uncharacterized allosteric site on mGlu(5), distinct from CPPHA, yet share a functional interaction with the MPEP site.
