UNLABELLED Glutamate (Glu) is the major excitatory transmitter in the vertebrate brain. Ligand-gated and G protein-coupled Glu receptors present in glial cells are presumably involved in neuronal function. Activation of Bergmann glial Glu receptors triggers a membrane to nuclei signaling cascade that regulates gene expression at the transcriptional and(More)
Glutamate, the main excitatory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate brain, is critically involved in gene expression regulation in neurons and in glia cells. Neuron-glia interactions provide the framework for synaptic plasticity. Retinal and cerebellar radial glia cells surround glutamatergic excitatory synapses and sense synaptic activity through glutamate(More)
