Description VU 0364770 is a positive allosteric modulator(PAM) of mGlu4 with EC50 of 1.1 μM, exhibits insignificant activity at 68 other receptors, including other mGlu subtypes.
Targets
mGlu4 [1]
1.1 μM(EC50)
In vitro

VU0364770 is a potent and effective positive allosteric modulator of mGlu4. VU0346770 exhibits a potency of 1.1 ± 0.2 μM at human mGlu4 in the presence of an EC20 concentration of glutamate and shifts the glutamate concentration-response curve 31.4 ± 4.0-fold to the left. VU0364770 exhibits a potency of 290 ± 80 nM at rat mGlu4 and induces an 18.1 ± 1.7-fold left shift of the glutamate concentration-response curve. [1]

In vivo VU0364770 shows efficacy alone or when administered in combination with l-DOPA or an adenosine 2A (A2A) receptor antagonist preladenant currently in clinical development. When administered alone, VU0364770 exhibits efficacy in reversing haloperidol-induced catalepsy, forelimb asymmetry-induced by unilateral 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) lesions of the median forebrain bundle, and attentional deficits induced by bilateral 6-OHDA nigrostriatal lesions in rats. In addition, VU0364770 enhances the efficacy of preladenant to reverse haloperidol-induced catalepsy when given in combination. The effects of VU0364770 to reverse forelimb asymmetry are also potentiated when the compound is coadministered with an inactive dose of l-DOPA, suggesting that mGlu4 positive allosteric modulator may provide l-DOPA-sparing activity.

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
