Chemical modification of the glycine receptor with fluorescein isothiocyanate specifically affects the interaction of glycine with its binding site.


Fluorescein 5'-isothiocyanate (FITC) was used to modify lysine residues of the strychnine-sensitive glycine receptor. Pretreatment of rat spinal cord synaptic plasma membranes with FITC specifically affected the ability of glycine to displace [3H]strychnine binding. Glycine completely prevented the effect of FITC modification, suggesting the existence of… (More)
