[3H]taurine andd-[3H]aspartate release from astrocyte cultures are differently regulated by tyrosine kinases.

Volume-dependent anion channels permeable for Cl- and amino acids are thought to play an important role in the homeostasis of cell volume. Astrocytes are the main cell type in the mammalian brain showing volume perturbations under physiological and pathophysiological conditions. We investigated the involvement of tyrosine phosphorylation in hyposmotic… CONTINUE READING
