Segments of the mouse sciatic nerve were preloaded with either d-2,3-(3)H-Aspartic acid [nonmetabolizable analog of glutamate] or l-(14)C-proline and the release of these exogenous molecules was evaluated in the fractions of the perfusate following electrical or magnetic stimulation. The electrical stimulation (10Hz, 10Am, 20s) induced an instantaneous increase in the release of both molecules, although the release of d-2,3-(3)H-Aspartic acid was much greater. Moreover, contrary to l-(14)C… CONTINUE READING
