Cycloserine, D(+) | NMDA, glycine site partial agonist

D-Cycloserine (68-41-7) is a partial agonist at the glycine modulatory site of NMDA glutamatergic receptors.1 Blocks kainate-induced seizures2 and displays anticonvulsant effects3 in rat models. D-Cycloserine facilitates synaptic plasticity but impairs glutamatergic neurotransmission in rat hippocampal slices.4 Second-line drug for the treatment of tuberculosis.  Enhances activity-dependent plasticity in human adults.5
