Redox modulation of the NMDA receptor
TLDR
A critical cysteine residue on the NR2A subunit has been shown to react under physiological conditions with NO by S-nitrosylation or by reaction with NO− (nitroxyl anion) to underlie this form of modulation.

Magnesium gates glutamate-activated channels in mouse central neurones
TLDR
The voltage dependence of the NMDA receptor-linked conductance appears to be a consequence of the voltage dependenceof the Mg2+ block and its interpretation does not require the implication of an intramembrane voltage-dependent ‘gate’.
The interaction of agonists and noncompetitive antagonists at the excitatory amino acid receptors in rat retinal ganglion cells in vitro
TLDR
The results suggest that the 2 EAA analogs might not share a common ionophore, but rather activate separate receptor-ion channel complexes in rat retinal ganglion cell membranes.
Zinc selectively blocks the action of N-methyl-D-aspartate on cortical neurons.
TLDR
The ability of zinc to specifically modulate postsynaptic neuronal responses to excitatory amino acid transmitters, reducing N-methyl-to-aspartate receptor-mediated excitation while often increasing quisqualate receptor's excitation, is proposed to underlie its normal function at central exciteatory synapses and furthermore could be relevant to neuronal cell loss in certain disease states.
Micromolar concentrations of Zn2+ antagonize NMDA and GABA responses of hippocampal neurons
TLDR
The results provide evidence for an additional metal-binding site on the NMDA receptor channel, and suggest that Zn2+ may regulate both excitatory and inhibitory synaptic transmission in the hippocampus.
Glycine potentiates the NMDA response in cultured mouse brain neurons
TLDR
G glycine may facilitate excitatory transmission in the brain through an allosteric activation of the NMDA receptor, and can be observed in outside-out patches as an increase in the frequency of opening of the channels activated by NMDA agonists.

TLDR
MK-801 greatly reduced the channel activity elicited by application of N-Me-D-Asp but did not significantly alter the predominant unitary conductance, and the mean channel open time was reduced by MK-801 in a dose-dependent manner.
Influence of sulfhydryl reagents and heavy metals on the functional state of the muscarinic acetylcholine receptor in rat brain.
TLDR
Prior treatment with low concentrations of PCMB abolishes the ability of NEM subsequently to increase agonist binding, even when binding site-saturating concentrations of receptor ligands are included during the PCMB treatment to protect the binding site—a finding which suggests that NEM exerts its influence on agonistbinding through interaction with a group contiguous to the receptor binding site.
