A hippocampal GluR5 kainate receptor regulating inhibitory synaptic transmission
The principal excitatory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate central nervous system, L-glutamate, acts on three classes of ionotripic glutamate receptors, named after the agonists AMPAExpand
Prototypic G protein-coupled receptor for the intestinotrophic factor glucagon-like peptide 2.
Glucagon-like peptide 2 (GLP-2) is a 33-aa proglucagon-derived peptide produced by intestinal enteroendocrine cells. GLP-2 stimulates intestinal growth and up-regulates villus height in the smallExpand
Pharmacological discrimination of GluR5 and GluR6 kainate receptor subtypes by (3S,4aR,6R,8aR)-6-[2-(1(2)H-tetrazole-5-yl)ethyl]decahyd roisdoquinoline-3 carboxylic-acid.
The pharmacological tools available for the discrimination of kainate receptor subtypes are limited. We examined the effects of (3S,4aR,6R,8aR)-6-[2-(1(2)H-tetrazole-5-yl)ethyl]decahydrExpand
Calcium‐permeable α‐amino‐3‐hydroxy‐5‐methyl‐4‐isoxazole propionic acid receptors: A molecular determinant of selective vulnerability in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
The cause of the selective degeneration of motor neurons in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) remains unexplained. One potential pathogenetic mechanism is chronic toxicity due to disturbances ofExpand
Functional Expression of a Recombinant Unitary Glutamate Receptor from Xenopus, Which Contains N-Methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) and Non-NMDA Receptor Subunits*
A cDNA encoding a 100-kDa subunit (XenNR1) of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) glutamate receptor type has been cloned from Xenopus central nervous system. When XenNR1 is coexpressed in a mammalianExpand
cDNA cloning and functional properties of human glutamate receptor EAA3 (GluR5) in homomeric and heteromeric configuration.
We have isolated a new member of the human glutamate receptor family from a fetal brain cDNA library. This cDNA clone, designated EAA3a, shares a 90% nucleotide identity with the previously reportedExpand
A unitary non-NMDA receptor short subunit from Xenopus: DNA cloning and expression.
A high-affinity homomeric, non-NMDA glutamate receptor was previously purified from the amphibian Xenopus laevis. We have obtained nine peptide sequences from its subunit, applied in cDNA cloning.Expand
Characterization of antiallodynic actions of ALE-0540, a novel nerve growth factor receptor antagonist, in the rat.
There is growing evidence that nerve growth factor (NGF) may function as a mediator of persistent pain states. We have identified a novel nonpeptidic molecule, ALE-0540, that inhibits the binding ofExpand
Molecular structure and pharmacological characterization of humEAA2, a novel human kainate receptor subunit.
A cDNA encoding a novel human glutamate receptor subunit protein was isolated from a human hippocampal library. This cDNA, termed humEAA2, is most closely related to rat cDNAs for kainate receptorExpand
Molecular characterization of the human EAA5 (GluR7) receptor: a high-affinity kainate receptor with novel potential RNA editing sites.
Several cDNA clones encoding EAA5 receptor polypeptides were isolated from a human fetal brain library. The EAA5 cDNAs demonstrated an 88.7-90.1% nucleotide identity with rat GluR7 cDNAs. TheExpand
