Studies on the effects of lactate transport inhibition, pyruvate, glucose and glutamine on amino acid, lactate and glucose release from the ischemic rat cerebral cortex.


A rat four vessel occlusion model was utilized to examine the effects of ischemia/reperfusion on cortical window superfusate levels of amino acids, glucose, and lactate. Superfusate aspartate, glutamate, phosphoethanolamine, taurine, and GABA were significantly elevated by cerebral ischemia, then declined during reperfusion. Other amino acids were affected… (More)
