In vivo study of NMDA-sensitive glutamate receptor by fluorothienylcyclohexylpiperidine [correction of fluorothienylcycloexylpiperidine], a possible ligand for positron emission tomography.


As a preliminary to positron emission tomography (PET) studies of excitatory amino acid neurotransmission, N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA)-sensitive glutamate receptors of mice and rats were labelled in vivo with [3H]fluorothienylcyclohexylpiperidine [corrected] (FTCP), which binds to the phencyclidine site of the NMDA receptor. After intravenous injection, the… (More)
