d-Serine modulates neurogenic relaxation in rat corpus cavernosum.

Abstract

d-Serine, an endogenous co-agonist for the N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor in mammals, is synthesized from l-serine by serine racemase. Although much attention has been focused on the role of d-serine within the central nervous system, the physiological role of d-serine in peripheral nerves such as corpus cavernosal nerves has not been investigated… (More)
