In vivo potentiation of glutamate-mediated neuronal damage after chronic administration of the glycolysis inhibitor iodoacetate.

Abstract

Neuronal damage associated with cerebral ischemia and hypoglycemia might be the consequence of the extracellular accumulation of excitatory amino acids. In previous studies we showed that elevation of glutamate and aspartate extracellular levels by inhibition of its uptake in vivo is not sufficient to induce neuronal damage unless mitochondrial energy… (More)
