Ethanol increased the frequency of miniature glycinergic currents [miniature inhibitory postsynaptic currents (mIPSCs)] in cultured spinal neurons. This effect was dependent on intracellular calcium augmentation, since preincubation with BAPTA (an intracellular calcium chelator) or thapsigargin [a sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase (SERCA) pump(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) is involved in retinal signal processing, but its cellular actions are only partly understood. An established source of retinal NO are NOACs, a group of nNOS-expressing amacrine cells which signal onto bipolar, other amacrine and ganglion cells in the inner plexiform layer. Here, we report that NO regulates glutamate responses in(More)
20 Ethanol increased the frequency of miniature glycinergic currents (mIPSCs) in 21 cultured spinal neurons. This effect was dependent on intracellular calcium 22 augmentation since pre incubation with BAPTA (an intracellular calcium chelator) or 23 thapsigargin (a SERCA pump inhibitor) significantly attenuated this effect. Similarly, 24 U73122 (a(More)
