LY-307,452 is a drug used in neuroscience research, which was among the first compounds found that acts as a selective antagonist for the group II metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluR2/3),[1] and was useful in early studies of this receptor family,[2][3] although it has largely been replaced by newer drugs such as LY-341,495.
