Neuron–glia interactions: An intimate relationship

Abstract

and have a vital role in synaptic transmission. This is partly due to the cell surface expression of astroglial glutamate transporters (GLT1; also known as SLC1A2 and EAAT2) that mediate the uptake of extracellular glutamate and thereby modify the intensity of neurotransmission as well as prevent glutamate neurotoxicity. Although it is known that astroglia… (More)
