Description

Application

DL-2-Aminoadipic acid (AAA) has been used as an astrotoxin to kill astrocytes that prevent efficient integration of transplanted cells into the retina. It has also been used as a gliotoxin to study the effect of astrocytic swelling on the tortuosity.

Biochem/physiol Actions

DL-2-Aminoadipic acid (AAA) is a six-carbon homolog of glutamate and a gliotoxic compound. It is generally used to considerably reduce the number of astroglia in cerebellar cultures that acts as a model to study the mechanisms of a-aminoadipic acid induced glial toxicity.
