Multiple targets[edit]

Should it be mentioned that BOTH AMPA and Kainate activate BOTH AMPA receptors AND Kainate receptors? (The difference is in the type of response observed; iirc AMPA displays time dependent activation on AMPA-R's but Kainate doesn't - but don't quote me on that)

I may need to dig out sources.  :/

Correct IUPAC Name[edit]

The actual IUPAC Name is 2-amino-3-(3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazol-4-yl)propanoic acid--ChemSpiderMan (talk) 02:06, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

CAS number is a bit off[edit]

The CAS number given was for AMPA hydrobromide. I went ahead and changed it to the CAS for (R/S)-AMPA (or (±)-AMPA, depending on your tastes). Should I have done more than just change the number? Osquar F (talk) 11:28, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

Saying AMPA out loud…[edit]

Is it read as a two syllable single word or like four letters? All similar compounds are letter-by-letter, hence my doubt. If a single word, I'd assume it's a hamper without the h, so with an /æ/ like amorous and not /ə/ like America or /a:/ like arm. --Squidonius (talk) 02:27, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
