The action of two cyclobutane derivatives of L-glutamic acid on the high affinity uptake of L-glutamic acid was investigated using a preparation of synaptosomes from rat cerebral cortex. cis-1-Aminocyclobutane-1,3-dicarboxylic acid (also known as trans-2,4-methanoglutamic acid) potently inhibited L-glutamic acid uptake (IC50 30 microM), whereas trans-1-aminocyclobutane-1,3-dicarboxylic acid (also known as cis-2,4-methanoglutamic acid), a potent N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) agonist, was inactive… CONTINUE READING
