Functional diversity of synaptic AMPA/KA receptors from rat as revealed by subtype-specific antagonists.

Subtype-specific pharmacological compounds represent important tools to identify the molecular components of synaptically activated glutamate receptors in central neurones. Here, we utilized a collection of subtype-specific antagonists and modulators to investigate the functional profile of glutamate receptors in identified synapses in thin slices of the… (More)
