Glutamate-type hypothalamic-pituitary syndrome in mice treated with aspartate or cysteate in infancy
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the same hypothalamic lesion and syndrome of neuroendocrine manifestations occurs following treatment of infant mice with either of two other neuroexcitatory amino acids (L-cysteic or L-aspartic acids) which destroy arcuate neurons but not from a structurally related amino acid (DL-α-aminoadipic acid) which lacks neuro excitatory properties and spares arcsuate neurons.

Excitatory amino acids as a final common pathway for neurologic disorders.
In many neurologic disorders, injury to neurons may be caused at least in part by overstimulation of receptors for excitatory amino acids, including glutamate and aspartate. These neurologicExpand
