A high-affinity sodium-dependent L-glutamate transporter was expressed in Xenopus oocytes after microinjection of poly(A)+ RNA from primary astrocyte cultures from rat brain cortex. mRNA-induced L-glutamate transport was saturable by substrate and shows kinetic features similar to those found in intact glial cell preparations. L-Glutamate accumulation was(More)
