Dysiherbaine (1), isolated from the Micronesian sponge, Dysidea herbacea, is a novel excitatory amino acid with potent convulsant activity.Dysiherbaine activates namely, AMPA and kainic acid (KA) receptors, with considerable preference over KA receptors (K 1: dysiherbaine

of 26 and 153 nM for KA and AMPA receptors, respec-tively).Moreover, it has been shown that dysiherbaine could diﬀerentially activate one of the activation sites within the subunit of a heteromeric GluR5/KA2 recep-tor complexThis discrete aﬃnity of dysiherbaine has enabled characterization of the unexpectedly complex behavior of the heteromeric KA receptors.
