Inhibition of high voltage-activated calcium currents by L-glutamate receptor-mediated calcium influx.


The modulation of high voltage-activated (HVA) Ca2+ currents by L-glutamate and its agonists was investigated in cultured rat hypothalamic neurons. L-Glutamate and agonists selective for NMDA or non-NMDA receptors reversibly inhibited HVA Ca2+ currents. The putative presynaptic glutamate receptor agonist L-2-amino-4-phosphonobutyric acid and the selective… (More)
