    Description

    Applications
    Quinolinic acid is an endogenous NMDA agonist. Quinolinic acid is a metabolite of tryptophan that acts as a putative NMDA receptor agonist. Quinolinic acid is an “excitotoxic” metabolite and an agonist of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors. properties of KYNA raise the possibility of a functional link between KYNA and QUIN in the brain which may be of relevance for an understanding of human neurodegenerative disorders. Quinolinic acid is a potent endogenous excitant at amino acid receptors in CNS.

    Solubility
    Soluble in water (partly), alkalies, dilute aqueous base, DMSO, and alcohol (slightly).

    Notes
    Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Store away from strong oxidizing agents.
