The metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluRlα) is concentrated at perisynaptic membrane of neuronal subpopulations as detected by immunogold reaction
An antiserum to mGluR1 alpha labeled a 160 kd protein in immunoblots of membranes derived from rat brain or cells transfected with mGluR1 alpha. Immunoreactivity for mGluR1 alpha was present inExpand
Subsynaptic segregation of metabotropic and ionotropic glutamate receptors as revealed by immunogold localization
Glutamate is a major neurotransmitter in the brain that acts both through fast ionotropic receptors and through slower metabotropic receptors coupled to G proteins. Both receptors are presentExpand
The ligand-binding domain in metabotropic glutamate receptors is related to bacterial periplasmic binding proteins
Receptors for the major excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate include metabotropic (G protein-coupled) and ionotropic (glutamate-gated ion channel) types. These receptors have large, presumablyExpand
Cloning, expression, and gene structure of a G protein-coupled glutamate receptor from rat brain.
A complementary DNA encoding a G protein-coupled glutamate receptor from rat brain, GluGR, was cloned by functional expression in Xenopus oocytes. The complementary DNA encodes a protein of 1199Expand
Cloning and expression of a new member of the L-2-amino-4-phosphonobutyric acid-sensitive class of metabotropic glutamate receptors.
Despite the cloning of several metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluR1-6), the activity and localization of the cloned mGluRs do not account for the action of L-2-amino-4-phosphonobutyric acidExpand
A pharmacological characterization of the mGluR1α subtype of the metabotropic glutamate receptor expressed in a cloned baby hamster kidney cell line
The pharmacological specificity of the mGluR1 alpha subtype of the metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR) was examined in a cloned baby hamster kidney cell line (BHK-ts13) measuring [3H]glutamateExpand
Formation of stable preinitiation complexes between eukaryotic class B transcription factors and promoter sequences
At least one of the HeLa cell factors necessary for correct in vitro transcription from conalbumin or adenovirus late promoters binds to the region of the template that contains the ‘TATA’ box. ThisExpand
L-2-amino-4-phosphonobutyrate (L-AP4) is an agonist at the type iv metabotropic glutamate receptor which is negatively coupled to adenylate cyclase
Abstract Glutamate and L-AP4 inhibited forskolin-stimulated cyclic AMP (cAMP) production in baby hamster kidney (BHK) cells transfected with the type IV metabotropic receptor (mGluR4). In situExpand
Rapid agonist mediated phosphorylation of the metabotropic glutamate receptor 1α by protein kinase C in permanently transfected BHK cells
Clonal BHK cells permanently transfected with the metabotropic glutamate receptor 1α (mGluR1α), which is coupled to phospholipase C, were used to study the phosphorylation state of the receptor.Expand
Characterization of two alternatively spliced forms of a metabotropic glutamate receptor in the central nervous system of the rat
Amplification of complementary DNA by the polymerase chain reaction and anti-peptide antibodies were used to characterize the expression of two alternatively spliced forms of a metabotropic glutamateExpand
