DL-Homocysteic acid is a glutamic acid analog and a receptor agonist of NMDA. It disrupts calcium homeostasis and induces degeneration of spinal motor neurons, and has a cytotoxic effect on the central nervous system. DL-Homocysteic acid also induces oxidative stress in brain tissues and inhibits arterial pressure, heart rate and diaphragm electromyogram activity. Complexes with DL-Homocysteic acid and cations like sodium and zinc have been synthesized.
