The serotonin transporter (5-HTT) regulates serotonergic neurotransmission by determining the magnitude and duration of serotonergic responses. We have recently described a polymorphism in the 5-HTT gene promoter (5-HTTLPR) which influences the function of the 5-HTT and is associated with several...
The difference in ischemic tolerance between the retina and cerebral cortex may be attributable to a difference in glutamate release during ischemia. Glutamate release in the retina and the cerebral cortex was compared in rats. A dialysis electrode for real-time glutamate measurement was perfused...
Specific ( 3 H)-MK801 binding to rat NMDA receptors following the administration of the convulsant drug 3-mercaptopropionic acid (MP) and the adenosine analogue cyclopentyladenosine (CPA) was studied in striatal membrane fractions. MP administration (150 mg/kg, i.p.) caused an increase of 53% and...
