Neuronal-induced and glutamate-dependent activation of glial glutamate transporter function.


The activity of high-affinity glutamate transporters is essential for the normal function of the mammalian central nervous system. Using a combined pharmacological, confocal immunocytochemical, enzyme-based microsensor and fluorescence imaging approach, we examined glutamate uptake and transporter protein localization in single astrocytes of neuron… (More)
