Effects of organic and inorganic lead on synaptosomal uptake, release, and receptor binding of glutamate in young rats.

Abstract

Chemical changes in central glutamate neurotransmission were assessed by measuring synaptic membrane receptor binding, the uptake and release by synaptosomes of glutamate in rats treated acutely with tetraethyl lead and chronically with lead acetate. The activity of Na+, K+-ATPase in synaptosomes was measured to correlate with the changes in uptake/release… (More)
