The mechanism of ATP-induced long-term potentiation (LTP) was studied pharmacologically using guinea-pig hippocampal slices. LTP, induced in CA1 neurons by 10 min application of 10 microM ATP, was blocked by co-application of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist, D,L-2-amino-5-phosphonovalerate (5 or 50 microM). In ATP-induced LTP, the delivery of test synaptic inputs (once every 20 s) to CA1 neurons could be replaced by co-application of NMDA (100 nM) during ATP perfusion. These… CONTINUE READING
