Unlike 2-deoxy-D-glucose, 3-O-methyl-D-glucose does not induce long-term potentiation in rat hippocampal slices.


Equimolar replacement of 10 mM glucose by 2-deoxy-D-glucose (2-DG) causes substantial depression followed by a sharp and sustained potentiation of CA1 field EPSPs. In the present experiments, similar applications of 3-O-methyl-D-glucose, which is also taken up by cells but is not phosphorylated, had only a weak blocking action and elicited no potentiation… (More)
