The dicarboxylic amino acids, asparate and glutamate, occupy unique positions in intermediary metabolism, particularly in the mitochondria, where they play important roles in nitrogen and energy metabolism. Administration of large quantities of glutamate and asparate to the newborn mouse produces a variety of neurotoxic effects, the most marked of which is neuronal necrosis. Neurotoxic effects of glutamate and aspartate in animal species other than the rodent are highly controversial. In the… CONTINUE READING
