The Na+-dependent, "high-affinity" transport of L-glutamate (GluT) in brain tissue has become a significant focus of interest, particularly since it has been revealed that abnormalities of GluT may be associated with serious neurological disorders. Using quantitative autoradiography on 3H-sensitive films, we have studied, in thaw-mounted sections of rat(More)
Accumulation of [3H]L-serine in crude synaptosomal fractions freshly prepared from rat brain has been found to be temperature-sensitive and to consist of both Na(+)-dependent and Na(+)-independent components. The accumulation of [3H]L-serine measured at submicromolar concentrations had a distinct substrate selectivity, different from the uptake of(More)
