N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDA-R) is an amino acid receptor and membrane calcium channel. NMDA-R is activated by binding of coagonists, L-glutamine and L-glycine. In the brain, calcium entry via NMDA-R activates type I nitric oxide synthase (NOS I). The kidney also contains NOS I and vasodilates in response to L-glycine. In this study, NMDA-R mRNA was demonstrated in rat kidney cortex by reverse transcriptase-PCR and cDNA sequencing. NMDA-R protein was demonstrated in kidney cortex by… Expand
