Characteristics of monocarboxylates as energy substrates other than glucose in rat brain slices and the effect of selective glial poisoning - a 31P NMR study.

In rat brain slices we examined the differences in the levels of high-energy phosphates in the presence of various energy substrates by using 31P NMR with a time resolution of 4 min at 25 degrees C. In parallel experiments we recorded population excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs) from granule cells in rat hippocampal slices. During high K… (More)
