Biochemical identification of a putative glutamate receptor in housefly thoracic membranes.

Specific stereoselective binding of [3H]L-glutamate was detected to membranes prepared from housefly thorax to which were added several antiproteases. A single high affinity binding site was detected (KD 0.5 +/- 0.04 microM), but total binding varied from preparation to preparation (5-60 pmoles/mg protein). Specific binding was inhibited by preincubation of… CONTINUE READING
