Shedding Light on Metabotropic Glutamate Receptors

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

In this issue of Cell Chemical Biology, the elegant manuscript by Rovira et al. (2016) describes a negative allosteric modulator (NAM) of mGlu4 metabotropic glutamate receptors with in vivo activity. This compound is rapidly and reversibly inactivated by light and represents a powerful pharmacological tool for the study of mGlu4 receptors in their native environment.
