Abstract

The vast majority of synapses in the central nervous system appear to use excitatory amino acids (EAA)I as their neurotransmitters. Recent progress has greatly advanced our understanding of the properties of those receptors 'The following abbreviations have been used in the text; I3-L-ODAP, I3-N-uxalyl-L-a,l3diaminu-prupiunic acid; ACPD, Trans-l-aminu-cydupentyl-I,3-dicarbuxylate; AMPA, a­ aminu-3-hydruxy-5-methyl-isoxazole-4-propionate; AP4, 2-amino-4-phosphonobutyrate; AP5, 2-amino-5-phuphonovalerate; ASP, aspartate; CNQX, 6-cyano-7-nitro-quinoxaline-2,3-dione; CPP, 3-(2-earboxypiperazin-4-yl)prupyl- l -phosphate; cyelo-Leu, eydo-Ieucine; DAA, D-a­ amino-adipate; DGG, y-D-glutamylglycine; DNQX, 6,7-dinitro-quinoxaline-2,3dione; EAA, excitatory amino acids; GABA, gamma-aminu-butyric acid; GDEE, glutamate diethyl ester; GLU, glutamate; GLY, glycine; HA-966, 3-amino-l -hydroxypyrrolidone-2; lBO, ibotenate; IP, inositol phosphate; KA, kainate; KYN, kynurenate; MK-801, dibenzoeyclohepteneimine; NMDA, N-methyl-D-aspartate; PCP, phencyclidine; QA, quisqualate; SER, serine; SOP, serine­ O-phosphate; TCP, 1-[1-(2-thienyl)-eyclohexyIJpiperidine 0362- 1642/89/04 15-0365$02.00 MONAGHAN, BRIDGES & COTMAN serving synaptic transmission along these pathways.
