Much attention has been paid to proteases involved in long-term potentiation (LTP). Calpains, Ca-dependent cysteine proteases, have first been demonstrated to be the mediator of LTP by the proteolytic cleavage of fodrin, which allows glutamate receptors located deep in the postsynaptic membrane to move to the surface. It is now generally considered that(More)
To study the influence of microglia on glutamatergic synaptic transmission in the acute phase of neuronal injury, we first examined the effects of primary cultured microglia transferred onto the organotypic cortical slice cultures. In these microglia-transferred cortical slice cultures, stimulation of the subcortical white matter induced fast excitatory(More)
