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