L-AP6 (CAT: I010195) is an antagonist of the excitatory amino acid transporter subtype 3 (EAAT3), also known as glutamate transporter 1 (GLT-1). EAAT3 is a sodium-dependent transporter responsible for the reuptake of glutamate, an important neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. By inhibiting EAAT3, L-AP6 can interfere with glutamate reuptake, leading to increased extracellular levels of glutamate. This modulation of glutamate transport can have significant implications in neurobiological processes and neurodegenerative disorders. L-AP6 is commonly used in research to study the roles of glutamate transporters and glutamate signaling in various physiological and pathological conditions.
