  • Publisher Summary Kainic acid, a conformationally restricted glutamate derivative, may be helpful to characterize neurons using glutamate as neurotransmitter. Biochemical, histological, and physiological evidence in the central nervous system indicate a close relation between the neuronal effects of glutamate and kainic acid. However, the precise mechanism by which kainic acid acts is not known. This chapter examines the L-glutamate-sensitive binding and the neurotoxic effects of kainic acid in… CONTINUE READING
