Role for P2X Receptors in Long-Term Potentiation
ATP receptors participate in synaptic transmission and intracellular calcium signaling in the hippocampus by providing a component of the excitatory input to CA1 pyramidal neurons. The activation ofExpand

A receptor for protons in the nerve cell membrane
Abstract The neurones isolated from spinal ganglia and from the ganglion of trigeminal nerve of a rat were investigated by means of intracellular perfusion and voltage clamp. The extracellularExpand

Extrasynaptic NR2B and NR2D subunits of NMDA receptors shape ‘superslow’ afterburst EPSC in rat hippocampus
In conditions of facilitated synaptic release, CA3/CA1 synapses generate anomalously slow NMDA receptor‐mediated EPSCs (EPSCNMDA). Such a time course has been attributed to the cooperation ofExpand

Rapid extracellular pH transients related to synaptic transmission in rat hippocampal slices
Extracellular pH changes were measured in the rat hippocampal slices using the pH-sensitive dye Phenol red. pH changes accompanied artificially evoked synaptic transmission in the dendrite area ofExpand

Excitatory amino acid receptors in hippocampal neurons: Kainate fails to desensitize them
The excitatory responses to L-glutamate (L-Glu), quisqualate (QA) and kainate (KA) have been investigated in isolated pyramidal cells from rat hippocampus using intracellular perfusion andExpand

Distinct quantal features of AMPA and NMDA synaptic currents in hippocampal neurons: implication of glutamate spillover and receptor saturation.
Excitatory postsynaptic currents (EPSCs) were studied in the CA1 pyramidal cells of rat hippocampal slices. Components mediated by alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazole-4-proprionic acid (AMPA) andExpand

Separation of sodium and calcium currents in the somatic membrane of mollusc neurones. With an Appendix by Yu A. Shakhovalov
1. Characteristics of the transmembrane ionic currents under controlled changes in ionic composition of extra‐ and intracellular medium were studied in isolated neurones from the ganglia of molluscs,Expand

Cationic channels activated by extracellular atp in rat sensory neurons
Single channels activated by externally applied ATP were investigated in cultured sensory neurons from nodosal and spinal ganglia of rat using patch clamp and concentration clamp methods. MeanExpand

P2X receptors and synaptic plasticity
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is released in many synapses in the CNS either together with other neurotransmitters, such as glutamate and GABA, or on its own. Postsynaptic action of ATP is mediatedExpand
