Tonic activation of GLUK5 kainate receptors decreases neuroblast migration in whole-mounts of the subventricular zone.


In the postnatal subventricular zone (SVZ), neuroblasts migrate in chains along the lateral ventricle towards the olfactory bulb. AMPA/kainate receptors as well as metabotropic glutamate receptors subtype 5 (mGluR5) are expressed in SVZ cells. However, the cells expressing these receptors and the function of these receptors remain unexplored. We thus… (More)
