It is well known that metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) have multiple actions on neuronal excitability mediated by G-protein-coupled receptors, although the exact mechanisms by which these actions occur are not understood. This study examines the effects of mGluRs agonists on voltage-dependent Ca2+ channels (VDCCs) currents (ICa) in the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) of rats using patch-clamp recording methods. An application of (RS)-3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine (DHPG, Group I mGluR… CONTINUE READING
