Endogenous neurotransmitter with high affinity for the brain glutamate receptor. N-acetylated α-linked acidic dipeptidase (NAALADase), a membrane-bound peptidase, hydrolyzes α-NAAG, a major brain peptide, to N-acetylaspartate and glutamate. Discriminates between mGluR2 and mGluR3. mGluR3 activator. NMDA receptor antagonist. Neuroprotective.
