Presynaptic glutamate receptor--possible involvement of a K+ channel.


Intra-axonal recording was made from the excitatory axon of the lobster walking leg near the nerve terminal and the effects of L-glutamate were studied. Topical application of glutamate to the synapse produced hyperpolarization in the presynaptic membrane with increase in conductance. The glutamate-induced hyperpolarization was reversed to a depolarization… (More)
