The presence of excitatory amino acid (EAA) receptors coupled to phosphoinositide metabolism in primary cultures of Müller (glial) cells from the chick retina was established. The order of potency of analogues for stimulating [3H]inositol phosphate (IP) accumulation was quisqualate (QA) > L-glutamate (L-Glu) = kainate (KA) > N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) >(More)
Binding of 3H-L-aspartate to membranes from retinal glial cells in primary culture was characterized. Binding kinetics showed a saturable, reversible binding to three populations of sites with KB = 40, 200, and 1,300 nM. The first two were present at 1 day in vitro (DIV), whereas the latter two were observed at 12 DIV. The possibility of the 40 nM site(More)
The binding of [3H]L-aspartate to membranes obtained from primary cultures of chick retinal Müller cells (glia) was studied Cells seeded in low-serum-containing medium (1%) and maintained in this condition showed an increased number of binding site from 1 to 5 days in vitro (DIV), when compared with controls cultured in medium containing 10% serum; these(More)
