Bone cells express glutamate-gated Ca2+-permeable N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors and GLAST glutamate transporters. Blocking NMDA receptors has been reported to reduce the number of bone resorption pits produced by osteoclasts, and mechanical loading alters GLAST transporter expression, which should change the extracellular glutamate concentration and(More)
