The central neurotoxicity of the excitatory amino acid neurotransmitter glutamate has been postulated to participate in the pathogenesis of the neuronal cell loss associated with several neurological disease states, but the complexity of the intact nervous system has impeded detailed analysis of the phenomenon. In the present study, glutamate neurotoxicity was studied with novel precision in dissociated cell cultures prepared from the fetal mouse neocortex. Brief exposure to glutamate was found…

Glia modulate the response of murine cortical neurons to excitotoxicity: glia exacerbate AMPA neurotoxicity
TLDR
It is found that glia were generally neuroprotective under excitotoxic conditions, likely through their ability to clear extracellular glutamate, however, the presence of glia exacerbated AMPA neurotoxicity.

TLDR
Zinc produced a concentration-dependent reduction in glutamate- induced neuronal injury in a fashion similar to that seen with NMDA, but less effectively, and paradoxically increased the glutamate-induced destruction of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate diaphorase (NADPH-d)-containing neurons.

TLDR
Results provide convincing evidence that the synaptic release of excitatory transmitter mediates the death of anoxic neurons, and suggests new strategies that may be effective in preventing the devastating insults produced by cerebral hypoxia and ischemia in man.
Duplication of biochemical changes of Huntington's chorea by intrastriatal injections of glutamic and kainic acids
TLDR
This work has injected 1 µl of either kainic acid or L-glutamic acid dissolved in isotonic saline directly into the extrapyramidal nuclei of rats, and found that injection into the striatum produced local enzymatic changes duplicating those reported in Huntington's chorea.

TLDR
Glutamate appears to be a general retinal toxin, while the survival of immature neurons or glia is not affected by kainate, at the concentrations tested.
Neurons containing NADPH-diaphorase are selectively resistant to quinolinate toxicity.
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis that the disease may be caused by excess exposure to quinolinate or some other endogenous N-methyl-D-aspartate agonist, and suggest neurons containing NADPH-d may have an unusual distribution of receptors for excitatory amino acids.

Development of muscarinic receptor binding in spinal cord cell cultures and its reduction by glutamic and kainic acids.
TLDR
The findings suggest that 80% or more of muscarinic binding sites in the spinal cord cell cultures are on neurons and that the sensitivity of these neurons to the toxic action of glutamate increases with their maturation in vitro.
