2-Oxoglutarate (2-OG) is a metabolic precursor of glutamate and may be utilized to replenish the neurotransmitter pool. 2-OG is rapidly transported into neurons by a high-affinity carrier that is particularly prevalent in glutamatergic terminals. Here we report the kinetics of [U-14C]2-OG uptake by crude synaptosomal preparations from bovine and rat retina(More)
