We examined the pharmacological profile of 1-aminoindan-1,5-dicarboxylic acid (AIDA), a rigid (carboxyphenyl)glycine derivative acting on metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs). In cells transfected with mGluR1a, AIDA competitively antagonized the stimulatory responses of glutamate and (1S,3R)-1-aminocyclopentane-1,3-dicarboxylic acid [(1S,3R)-ACPD] on(More)
1. Phospholipase D (PLD) is the key enzyme in a signal transduction pathway leading to the formation of the second messengers phosphatidic acid and diacylglycerol. In order to define the pharmacological profile of PLD-coupled metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs), PLD activity was measured in slices of adult rat brain in the presence of mGluR agonists(More)
