Synaptic activation of a presynaptic kainate receptor facilitates AMPA receptor-mediated synaptic transmission at hippocampal mossy fibre synapses.


The development of GluR5-selective kainate receptor ligands is helping to elucidate the functions of kainate receptors in the CNS. Here we have further characterised the actions of a GluR5 selective agonist, ATPA, and a GluR5 selective antagonist, LY382884, in the CA3 region of rat hippocampal slices. In addition, we have used LY382884 to study a novel… (More)
