Extracellular glutamate is kept below a toxic level by glial and neuronal glutamate transporters. Here we show that the transportable glutamate uptake inhibitor L-trans-pyrrolidine-2,4-dicarboxylate (t-PDC) induced cell death in mature, but not in immature, hippocampal neuron-enriched cultures. The cell death produced by a 24-hr treatment with t-PDC was(More)
