1. Antagonizing glutamatergic neurotransmission by blockade of AMPA-type glutamate receptors (GluR) is a promising pharmacological strategy for neuroprotection in neurodegenerative diseases and acute treatment of stroke. 2. We investigated the interaction of the adamantane derivative IEM-1460 with human wild-type and mutant AMPA-type GluR channels.(More)
AMPA-type glutamate receptor (GluR) channels are the most abundant excitatory transmitter receptors of the central nervous system. Four subunits with different posttranscriptional modifications and flip/flop splice variants are known. In vivo they occur as tetrameric heteromeric receptors. In the present study we analyzed the time course of desensitization(More)
