MPEP is a selective mGluR5 antagonist. MPEP reverses maze learning and PSD-95 deficits in Fmr1 knock-out mice. MPEP elevates accumbal dopamine and glycine levels; interaction with strychnine-sensitive glycine receptors. MPEP activates specific stress-related brain regions and lacks neurotoxic effects of the NMDA receptor antagonist MK-801: significance for the use as anxiolytic/antidepressant drug.
