S4250 D-Serine ≥98% (TLC) D-serine is essential for the normal development of dendrites, neuroblast migration and may have therapeutic potential for treating schizophrenia and depression states. The levels of D-serine is elevated in traumatic brain injury (TBI).
S4500 L-Serine ReagentPlus®, ≥99% (HPLC) L-Serine is a non-essential amino acid that acts as a precursor for nucleotide synthesis. It has roles in the development and function of the central nervous system. L-Serine also has a role in cellular proliferation.
Precursor of glycine by serine hydroxymethyltransferase.
SML0897 ALX 5407 hydrochloride ≥98% (HPLC) ALX-5407 hydrochloride (NFPS hydrochloride) is a selective irreversible inhibitor of the glycine transporter GlyT1 with IC50 values of 3 nM for GlyT1 compared to 100 μM for GlyT2. ALX-5407 hydrochloride showed no activity at the inhibitory glycine receptor or glycine site of the NMDA receptor (IC50 > 100 mM).
PZ0148 CP-802079 hydrochloride hydrate ≥98% (HPLC) CP-802079 is a potent and selective glycine transporter type 1 (GlyT1) antagonist. Antagonists of GlyT1 increase levels of glycine in the synaptic cleft and, like direct glycine site agonists, they can augment NMDAR currents and NMDAR-mediated functions. CP-802,079 significantly increases the amplitude of the NMDAR currents and LTP.
G2879 Glycine hydrochloride ≥99% (HPLC) Inhibitory neurotransmitter in spinal cord, allosteric regulator of NMDA receptors.
G6761 Glycine sodium salt hydrate ≥99% (HPLC)  
G7126 Glycine ReagentPlus®, ≥99% (HPLC) Glycine is an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and works as an allosteric regulator of NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) receptors. It is involved in processing of motor and sensory data, thereby regulating movement, vision and audition.
Inhibitory neurotransmitter in spinal cord, allosteric regulator of NMDA receptors.
H1384 Hypotaurine ≥98% (TLC) Antioxidant that binds hydroxyl radicals. Endogenous inhibitory neuromodulator that is blocked by strychnine and picrotoxin. Inhibits the Na2+-dependent transport of GABA and β-alanine. It is a degradation product of cysteine and a precursor of taurine.
Hypotaurine, a cystamine analog, is the precursor for taurine synthesis. It can act as an antioxidant and singlet oxygen scavenger, thereby protecting cells from oxidative damage. Hypotaurine is reported to play an important role in the maintenance and stimulation of sperm motility and also in vitro fertilization and embryo development.
O7639 Org 24598 lithium salt ≥98% (HPLC), solid Org 24598 is a selective, potent inhibitor of glial GlyT (GlyT1, glycine transporter type 1). In rats (P12-P16) and in the presence of kynurenic acid, 6-cyano-7-nitroquinoxaline-2,3-dione (CNQX) and bicuculline, ORG 24598 at a concentration of 10 μM induced a mean inward current of -10/-50 pA at -60 mV and increased significantly the decay time constants of miniature (mIPSCs), spontaneous (sIPSCs) and electrically evoked glycinergic (eIPSCs) inhibitory postsynaptic currents. Replacing extracellular sodium with N-methyl-d-glucamine or superfusing the slice with micromolar concentrations of glycine also increased the decay time constant of glycinergic IPSCs. Glycine (1-5 μM and d-serine (10 μM) increased the amplitude of eEPSCs whereas l-serine had no effect. Org 24598 increased significantly the amplitude of NMDA receptor-mediated eEPSCs without affecting the amplitude of non-NMDA receptor-mediated eEPSCs. This brings conclusion that blocking glial glycine transporter by Org 24598 increased the level of glycine in spinal cord slices, which in turn prolonged the duration of glycinergic synaptic current and potentiated the NMDA-mediated synaptic response.
S0532 Strychnine At low doses, strychnine is used for circulatory problems, gastrointestinal disorders and eye diseases.
Convulsant; glycine receptor antagonist not associated with the NMDA receptor.
S8753 Strychnine hydrochloride Convulsant; glycine receptor antagonist not associated with the NMDA receptor.
T0625 Taurine ≥99% Non-selective endogenous agonist at glycine receptors. Conditionally essential sulfonated amino acid which modulates apoptosis in some cells; functions in many metabolic activities; a product of methionine and cysteine metabolism.
Taurine modulates the concentration of intracellular calcium, protects against ischemia-reperfusion injury and possesses blood pressure-lowering properties. It also has a role in bile formation and fat digestion. Deficiency of taurine is associated with anxiety, hyperactivity, epilepsy and depression.
T3694   Tetanus toxin C fragment from Clostridium tetani Tetanus toxin is a neurotoxin that comprises of a heavy and a light chain linked by disulfide bridges. This neurotoxin enters the cytoplasm and releases the light chain component that subsequently inhibits the release of neurotransmitters2. Studies have reported that the fragment C of tetanus toxin retains most of the determinants that interact with thyroid membranes, gangliosides and neural membranes3.
T3194   Tetanus toxin from Clostridium tetani Binds to polysialogangliosides acceptors on surface of all peripheral presynaptic nerve terminals. Internalized by receptor-mediated endocytosis and carried to spinal cord and brain by transsynaptic retrograde transport. Blocks the release of glycine from inhibitory interneurons of the spinal cord. Cleaves synaptobrevin (VAMP-2), and blocks synaptic vesicle exocytosis in vivo.
146064 β-Alanine 99% β-Alanine, a β−amino acid, is a component of pantothenic acid and the rate-limiting amino acid in the biosynthesis of the histidinyl antioxidant dipeptides carnosine and anserine. Endogenous β-amino acid that is a nonselective agonist at glycine receptors and a ligand for the G protein-coupled orphan receptor, TGR7 (MrgD). β-Alanine flux plays a cytoprotective role by supporting the osmotic stability of marine organisms, preimplantation mouse embryos and mammalian cells exposed to hypoxic stress.
