Modification of the Xenopus electroretinogram by actions of glycine in the proximal retina.

The electroretinogram (ERG) was recorded from the Xenopus retina, to examine the effects of glycine and strychnine on these responses and to determine the origins of these changes. Glycine at concentrations between 0.1 and 10 mM reduced the b- and d-waves of the ERG in a dose-dependent manner, while strychnine increased their amplitude. 2-Amino-4… (More)
