Receptors preferentially activated by the excitatory amino acid N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) do not mediate synaptic transmission in the hippocampus but are involved in initiating long-term potentiation (LTP) in hippocampal region CA1. We have examined the role of NMDA receptors in LTP of the commissural/associational and mossy fiber pathways to region CA3 pyramidal neurons. In the commissural/associational pathway, NMDA receptor blockers did not reduce synaptic responses but reversibly blocked… Expand
Long-Term Potentiation and Drugs
We investigated the modulation of tetanus-induced long-term potentiation (LTP) in guinea pig hippocampal slices brought about by bath-applied drugs and by neurotransmitter-related agents, using anExpand
Opioid receptors are involved in an NMDA receptor-independent mechanism of LTP induction at hippocampal mossy fiber-CA3 synapses
TLDR
It is suggested that LTP at the mossy fiber-CA3 synapse constitutes an NMDA receptor-independent, opioid receptor-dependent, form of hippocampal synaptic plasticity. Expand
Presynaptic changes during mossy fibre LTP revealed by NMDA receptor-mediated synaptic responses
ACTIVITY-DEPENDENT changes in synaptic strength are important for learning and memory. Long-term potentiation (LTP) of glutamatergic excitatory synapses following brief repetitive stimulationExpand
Kainate receptors and the induction of mossy fibre long-term potentiation.
TLDR
It is concluded that activation of presynaptic GLU(K5)-containing kainate receptors is an important trigger for the induction of mossy fibre LTP in the hippocampus. Expand
Mediation of hippocampal mossy fiber long-term potentiation by cyclic AMP.
TLDR
It is proposed that calcium entry into the presynaptic terminal may activate Ca(2+)-calmodulin-sensitive adenylyl cyclase I which, through protein kinase A, causes a persistent enhancement of evoked glutamate release. Expand
Opioid receptor modulation of mossy fiber synaptogenesis: independence from long-term potentiation
TLDR
The increase in Timm's staining in the infrapyramidal region suggests that mossy fiber synaptogenesis occurs in response to non-seizure inducing stimulation, because it occurs in the presence of naloxone which blocks LTP. Expand
Comparison of two forms of long-term potentiation in single hippocampal neurons.
TLDR
Although the induction of associational-commissural LTP requires in the postsynaptic cell N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor activation, membrane depolarization, and a rise in calcium, mossy fiber LTP does not. Expand
Differences in kainate receptor involvement in hippocampal mossy fibre long-term potentiation depending on slice orientation
TLDR
Differences in pharmacological sensitivity of synaptic plasticity at mossy fibre - CA3 synapses depend critically on slice orientation, including in transverse slices, LTP of fEPSPs was invariably resistant to GluK1-selective antagonists whereas in parasagittal slices LTP was consistently blocked by Glu kainate receptors. Expand
The role of Ca2+ channels in hippocampal mossy fiber synaptic transmission and long-term potentiation
TLDR
The results suggest that the induction of mossy fiber LTP is critically dependent on the entry of Ca2+ into the presynaptic terminal to trigger a series of steps resulting in the long lasting enhancement of evoked glutamate release. Expand
Induction of LTP in the hippocampus needs synaptic activation of glutamate metabotropic receptors
TLDR
(RS)-α-methyl-4-carboxyphenylglycine is a specific mGluR antagonist in the hippocampus and this compound is used to examine the nature of the involvement ofmGluRs in LTP, and it is shown that synaptic activation of mGLURs is necessary for the induction of both NMDA receptor-dependent and NMDA receptors-independent forms of LTP inThe hippocampus.

Long-term potentiation in the hippocampus involves activation of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors
TLDR
The results demonstrate that NMDA receptors present in hippocampal region CA1 are not necessary for normal synaptic transmission, but are involved in the initiation of long-term synaptic plasticity. Expand
Selective impairment of learning and blockade of long-term potentiation by an N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor antagonist, AP5
TLDR
It is reported that chronic intraventricular infusion of D, L-AP5 causes a selective impairment of place learning, which is highly sensitive to hippocampal damage7, without affecting visual discrimination learning,which is not8 and suggest that NMDA receptors are involved in spatial learning, and add support to the hypothesis that LTP is involved in some, but not all, forms of learning.

Acidic amino acid antagonists of lateral perforant path synaptic transmission: agonist—antagonist interactions in the dentate gyrus
TLDR
2-Amino-4-phosphonobutyrate and SOP, potent synaptic blockers of the lateral perforant path input to this system, are moderately selective antagonists of kainate and N-methyl-DL-aspartate depolarization, but not depolarizations produced by L-glutamate, quisqualate, or serine-O-sulfate. Expand
A possible correlate of the postsynaptic condition for long-lasting potentiation in the guinea pig hippocampus in vitro
TLDR
A slow extracellular dendritic negativity-interpreted as a sign of a dendrite depolarizing process-was enhanced by picrotoxin and depressed by APV and may represent a postsynaptic event involved in the production of long-lasting potentiation. Expand
Excitatory amino acids in synaptic transmission in the Schaffer collateral‐commissural pathway of the rat hippocampus.
TLDR
Results indicate that the synaptic receptor in the Schaffer collateral‐commissural pathway may be of the kainate or quisqualate type and although NMA receptors do not appear to be involved in normal synaptic transmission in this pathway they may play a role in synaptic plasticity. Expand
2-Amino-4-phosphonobutyrate selectively blocks mossy fiber-CA3 responses in guinea pig but not rat hippocampus
TLDR
The acidic amino acid antagonist D,L-2-amino-4-phosphonobutyrate (DL-APB) is a potent blocker of synaptic transmission at guinea pig but not rat mossy fiber-CA3 synapses in hippocampal slices, which may reflect a difference in a synaptic acidic amino acids receptor in these two species. Expand
Effects of excitatory amino acid antagonists on evoked and spontaneous excitatory potentials in guinea‐pig hippocampus.
TLDR
Results are consistent with a presynaptic site of action for L‐AP4 and L‐SOP and a post‐synaptic siteof action for kynurenate and pBB‐PzDA as antagonists of e.p.s.s at the guinea‐pig mossy fibre‐CA3 pyramidal neurone synapse. Expand

Anatomical distributions of four pharmacologically distinct 3H-L-glutamate binding sites
TLDR
There are at least four distinct classes of 3H-L-glutamate binding sites which differ in their anatomical distribution, pharmacological profile and regulation by ions, and a third site may represent the KA receptor and a fourth binding site does not conform to present receptor classifications.

Large long-lasting potentiation in the dentate gyrus in vitro during blockade of inhibition
TLDR
It is suggested that the enhanced production of long-lasting potentiation in inhibition-free slices is related to an increased postsynaptic depolarization in granule cell dendrites. Expand
