1. We have investigated the modulation of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor activation by the sulphydryl redox reagents dithiothreitol (DTT) and 5,5-dithio-bis-2-nitrobenzoic acid (DTNB). 2. Increases in [3H]-MK-801 binding produced by glutamate, glycine and spermidine were enhanced by DTT (2mM) and diminished by DTNB (0.5 mM). 3. The inhibition of(More)
We have examined the hypothesis that phenothiazines and tricyclic antidepressants interact with the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor by mimicking the actions of Zn2+. Using [3H]MK801 binding to well-washed rat brain membranes, we found a disparity between the concentrations of drug required to inhibit [3H]MK801 binding and those necessary to alter(More)
