A study was made of the effects of reduced (GSH) and oxidized (GSSG) glutathione on the Na+-independent and N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) displaceable bindings of glutamate, on the binding of kainate, 2-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionate (AMPA), and ligands of the brain NMDA receptor-ionophore complex: glycine, dizocilpine (MK-801) and (±)-3-(2-car-boxypiperazin-4-yl)propyl-1-phosphonate (CPP). GSH and GSSG strongly inhibited the binding of glutamate, CPP and AMPA, kainate and glycine… Expand
Interference of S-Alkyl Derivatives of Glutathione with Brain Ionotropic Glutamate Receptors
TLDR
The endogenous S-methylglutathione and glutathione sulfonate and the synthetic S-alkyl derivatives of glutathion act as ligands of the AMPA and NMDA receptors and in the NMDA receptor-ionophore. Expand
Interference of S-Nitrosoglutathione with the Binding of Ligands to Ionotropic Glutamate Receptors in Pig Cerebral Cortical Synaptic Membranes
TLDR
It is assumed that GSNO may act as an endogenous ligand at the NMDA and non-NMDA classes of glutamate receptors and facilitate NO transfer and target its delivery to specific sites in these receptors. Expand
Modulation of [3H]Dopamine Release by Glutathione in Mouse Striatal Slices
TLDR
Glutathione alone does not directly evoke dopamine release but may inhibit the depolarization-evoked release by preventing the toxic effects of high glutamate, and by modulating the cysteine–cystine redox state in Ca2+ channels. Expand
Searching for Mechanisms of N-Methyl-d-Aspartate-Induced Glutathione Efflux in Organotypic Hippocampal Cultures
TLDR
NMDA receptor stimulation cause an increased selective efflux of glutathione, phosphoethanolamine and taurine in organotypic cultures of rat hippocampus, and the efflux may partly be regulated by calmodulin and DNDS sensitive channels. Expand
S-Nitrosoglutathione and glutathione act as NMDA receptor agonists in cultured hippocampal neurons
TLDR
Combined pre- and postnatal morphine exposure does not modulate NMDA receptor signaling in the cultured hippocampal neurons and the maximal responses and the EC50 values for the glutamate, NMDA, GSNO, and glutathione-induced [Ca2+]i increases and the glutathion-induced glutamate release were indistinguishable in the neurons of the offspring from control and morphine-addicted female rats. Expand
Involvement of Amino-Acid Side Chains of Membrane Proteins in the Binding of Glutathione to Pig Cerebral Cortical Membranes
TLDR
The results indicate that cysteinyl side chains and disulfide bonds are essential in the binding of GSH to membrane proteins and that arginyl and lysylSide chains may also be directly involved in this process. Expand
Allosteric modulation of the calcium-sensing receptor by gamma-glutamyl peptides: inhibition of PTH secretion, suppression of intracellular cAMP levels, and a common mechanism of action with L-amino acids.
TLDR
It is found that γ-glutamyl peptides are potent positive allosteric modulators of the CaR that promote Ca(2+)(o)-dependent Ca( 2+)(i) mobilization, suppress intracellular cAMP levels and inhibit PTH secretion from normal human parathyroid cells. Expand
Monoaminergic dysregulation in glutathione-deficient mice: Possible relevance to schizophrenia?
TLDR
The data presented here show that even short-term GSH-deficiency has consequences for DA and 5-HT function, and the open field findings suggest reduced or altered N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor function in GSI-deficient mice. Expand
Dynamic or inert metabolism? Turnover of N‐acetyl aspartate and glutathione from d‐[1‐13C]glucose in the rat brain in vivo
TLDR
It is concluded that NAA and GSH are completely turned over and that the metabolism is extremely slow (< 0.05% of the glucose metabolic rate). Expand
Effects of acute N-acetylcysteine challenge on cortical glutathione and glutamate in schizophrenia: A pilot in vivo proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy study
TLDR
No differences in the levels of GSH or Glu were found at baseline or following NAC administration between patients with schizophrenia and control subjects in either of the targeted brain regions and future studies measuring GSH levels in brain regions previously found to exhibit glutamatergic abnormalities are warranted.

Different modes of action of 3-amino-1-hydroxy-2-pyrrolidone (HA-966) and 7-chlorokynurenic acid in the modulation of N-methyl-D-aspartate-sensitive glutamate receptors.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that Cl-KYN and HA-966 differ in their ability to modulate the NMDA receptor, perhaps acting at distinct but overlapping recognition sites and suggest that agonist and antagonist recognition sites of the NMda receptor may be independently regulated by glycine and HA -966, which would result in a positive and negative allosteric modulation of theNMDA receptor complex. Expand
3H-labeled MK-801 binding to the excitatory amino acid receptor complex from rat brain is enhanced by glycine.
TLDR
Glycine regulated 3H-labeled MK-801 binding, and enhanced the ability of N-methyl-D-aspartate to increase Ca2+ influx into primary cultures of mouse striatal neurons measured using the Ca2-sensitive fluorescent dye fura-2. Expand
Glutathione modulates the N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor-activated calcium influx into cultured rat cerebellar granule cells
TLDR
It is proposed that both the accessibility and redox state of the functional sulfhydryl groups in NMDA receptor-ionophores may be regulated by endogenous glutathione, attributed to the gamma-glutamyl moiety and sulfHydryl group in the tripeptide molecule. Expand
Effects of thiol-reagents on [3H]alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazole-4-propionic acid binding to rat telencephalic membranes.
TLDR
The results suggest that free sulfhydryl groups allosterically modulate the affinity of the quisqualate subtype of excitatory amino acid receptors and also indicate that different types of glutamate receptors might be differentially affected by chemical modification. Expand
Stimulation of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor-mediated calcium entry into dissociated neurons by reduced and oxidized glutathione.
TLDR
The results suggest the potential for modulation of the NMDA receptor complex by GSH and GSSG using fura-2-loaded dissociated brain cells from newborn rat pups and the idea that these effects are mediated, at least in part, by interaction with theNMDA receptor was supported. Expand

Oxidized glutathione modulates N-methyl-d-aspartate- and depolarization-induced increases in intracellular Ca2+ in cultured rat forebrain neurons
TLDR
The results suggest that high concentrations of G SSG may modulate NMDA receptors, and that some of the actions of GSSG may be mediated by the redox site on the receptor complex. Expand
