Biochem/physiol Actions

L-Aspartic acid is a natural proteinogenic amino acid that may be used in the formulation of cell culture media and in protein and polypeptide synthesis systems and procedures. L-Aspartic acid, an NMDA receptor agonist and non-specific glutamate receptor agonist, is used to differentiate and study the mechanisms of NMDA receptors.
Principal neurotransmitter for fast synaptic excitation.

Alterations in cell-cycle regulation and cellular metabolism are associated with cancer transformation, and enzymes active in the committed cell-cycle phase may represent vulnerabilities of cancer cells. Here, we map metabolic events in the G1 and SG2M phases by combining cell...

Macrophages are strongly adapted to their tissue of residence. Yet, little is known about the cell-cell interactions that imprint the tissue-specific identities of macrophages in their respective niches. Using conditional depletion of liver Kupffer cells, we traced the developmental stages...

Glutamate transporters play important roles in the termination of excitatory neurotransmission and in providing cells throughout the body with glutamate for metabolic purposes. The high-affinity glutamate transporters EAAC1 (SLC1A1), GLT1 (SLC1A2), GLAST (SLC1A3), EAAT4 (SLC1A6), and EAAT5 (SLC1A7) mediate the...
