Vesicular glutamate transporters (VGLUTs) allow the loading of presynaptic glutamate vesicles and thus play a critical role in glutamatergic synaptic transmission. Rose Bengal (RB) is the most potent known VGLUT inhibitor (Ki 25 nM); therefore we designed, synthesized and tested in brain preparations, a series of analogs based on this scaffold. We showed(More)
Vesicular Glutamate Transporters (VGLUTs) allow the loading of presynapic glutamate vesicles and thus play a critical role in glutamatergic synaptic transmission. VGLUTs have proved to be involved in several major neuropathologies and directly correlated to clinical dementia in Alzheimer and Parkinson's disease. Accordingly VGLUT represent a key biological(More)
