VU0361737 is a selective, positive allosteric modulator and brain-permeable for mGLuR4 (mGlu4 receptor), (EC₅₀ = 240 and 110 nM for human and rat receptors respectively), >50 fold selectivity over other mGluR subtypes. Inactive at mGluR-1, mGluR-2, mGluR-3, mGluR-6 and mGluR-7 receptors and showed weak activity at mGluR-5 and mGluR-8 receptors. [1]

The mGluR (metabotropic glutamate receptor) is a group of G-protein coupled receptors and is active through an indirect metabotropic process. mGLuR4 are invoinved in Parkinson as it decrease GABAerigic transmission at inhibitory striato-pallidal synapse with the basal ganglia.[1][2]

Following the administration of VU0361737 into rat intraperitoneally (10mg/kg), the amount of compound present in brain and plasma was determined at 0.5, 1 and 8 hours. It showed a short half-life (T1/2 20 minutes) and a pronounced brain exposure (brain: plasma ratio = 4.1) [1]
