Ifenprodil is a selective inhibitor of the NMDA receptor.[1]

NMDA receptors are multimeric ionotropic glutamate receptors composed of four subunits. NR1 is obligate for functional expression. Other subunits include NR2A, NR2B, and the more recently discovered NR3 subunits. Ifenprodil selectively blocks NMDA receptors containing the NR2B subunit.
