High sensitivity of immature GABAergic neurons to blockers of voltage-gated calcium channels.

Abstract

The involvement of voltage-gated calcium channels in the survival of immature CNS neurons was studied in aggregating brain cell cultures by examining cell type-specific effects of various channel blockers. Nifedipine (10 microM), a specific blocker of L-type calcium channels, caused a pronounced and irreversible decrease of glutamic acid decarboxylase… (More)
