|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.|
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. 
|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. |

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.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and SDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and SDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
