We have examined the development of expression of group I and II metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) in pure rat spinal cord astrocyte cultures, using immunocytological and calcium imaging techniques. mGluR1a and mGluR2/3 antibodies were found to label roughly 10% of the total astrocyte population at all time points examined, whereas mGluR5 was poorly expressed in our culture system. Results from intracellular Ca + imaging experiments, measured using fura-2 ratio imaging, suggest that 20… CONTINUE READING
