Inhibition of kainic acid binding to glutamate receptors by extracts of Gastrodia
S-(4-hydroxybenzyl)glutathione was isolated as the major principle responsible for the inhibition of the in vitro binding of kainic acid to brain glutamate receptors by water extracts of the plant Gastrodia elata. The affinity (IC value) of the compound is slightly lower compared to glutamate and glutathione. © 1995. 50
