The Ca(2+)/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) is critically required for the synaptic recruitment of AMPA-type glutamate receptors (AMPARs) during both development and plasticity. However, the underlying mechanism is unknown. Using single-particle tracking of AMPARs, we show that CaMKII activation and...

It was demonstrated in our recent study that Zn(2+) had dual effects on Ca(2+)-permeable AMPA receptors on carp retinal horizontal cells. However, the possible mechanism(s) underlying the Zn(2+) effects is still unclear. In the present study, we examined the Zn(2+)...

Positive allosteric modulators of the ionotropic glutamate receptor-2 (GluA2) are promising compounds for the treatment of cognitive disorders, e.g. Alzheimer's disease. These modulators bind within the dimer interface of the LBD (ligand-binding domain) and stabilize the agonist-bound conformation slowing receptor...

(-)-N-(Cyclopropylmethyl)-4,14-dimethoxymorphinan-6-one (2) was synthesized with 4,14-dimethoxy-N-methylmorphinan-6-one (1) as starting material. In vivo and in vitro experiments show 2 (cyprodime) to be a pure opioid receptor antagonist. Some of these tests (opioid receptor binding assays, guinea pig ileal longitudinal muscle preparation...

Positive allosteric modulators of α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-isoxazole-propionic acid (AMPA) ionotropic glutamate receptors facilitate synaptic plasticity and contribute essentially to learning and memory, properties which make AMPA receptors targets for drug discovery and development. One region at which several different classes of positive...

The Bergmann glia is equipped with Ca2+-permeable AMPA receptors for glutamate, indispensable for structural and functional relations between the Bergmann glia and parallel/climbing fibers-Purkinje cell synapses. To better understand roles for the Bergmann AMPA receptors, herein we investigate on gliotransmitter...

AMPA receptors are ligand-gated ion channels that show multiple conductance levels, indicating that gating of individual AMPA subunits is to some extent independent of the other subunits. To study AMPAR subunit interactions during activation gating, we recorded from single channels...

Glutamate is believed to be the primary excitatory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate retina, and its fast postsynaptic effects are elicited by activating NMDA-, kainate-, or AMPA-type glutamate receptors. We have characterized the ionotropic glutamate receptors present on retinal horizontal cells...

AMPA receptors (AMPARs) are glutamate-gated ion channels ubiquitous in the vertebrate central nervous system, where they mediate fast excitatory neurotransmission and act as molecular determinants of memory formation and learning. Together with detailed analyses of individual AMPAR domains, structural studies...

Postsynaptic receptor desensitization has been observed to contribute to depression in immature synapses. However, it is not clear whether desensitization persists and causes depression in mature synapses. We investigate this issue at the endbulb of Held, the synapse made by...

Ionotropic glutamate receptors (iGluRs) mediate fast excitatory neurotransmission. Upon glutamate application, 2-amino-3-(3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolyl)propionic acid receptors undergo rapid and almost complete desensitization that can be attenuated by positive allosteric modulators. The molecular mechanism of positive allosteric modulation has been elucidated previously by...

AMPA receptors (AMPARs) mediate the majority of fast excitatory transmission in the brain and critically contribute to synaptic plasticity and pathology. AMPAR trafficking and gating are tightly controlled by auxiliary transmembrane AMPAR regulatory proteins (TARPs). Here, using systematic domain swaps...

Ionotropic glutamate receptors (iGluRs) are glutamate-gated ion channels that mediate excitatory neurotransmission in the central nervous system. Based on both molecular and pharmacological criteria, iGluRs have been divided into two major classes, the non-NMDA class, which includes both AMPA and...

In this study, we demonstrate the existence on trigeminal caudal nucleus (TCN) glutamatergic terminals of α4β2 nicotinic receptors (nAChRs) capable of enhancing the terminals' spontaneous release of [(3)H]d-aspartate ([(3)H]D-Asp). In rat TCN synaptosomes, spontaneous [(3)H]D-Asp release was increased by nicotine...

At central glutamatergic synapses, neurotransmitter often saturates postsynaptic AMPA receptors (AMPARs), thereby restricting the dynamic range of synaptic efficacy. Here, using simultaneous pre- and postsynaptic whole-cell recordings, at the calyx of Held synapse of immature rats, we have investigated the...

Amacrine cells that respond transiently to maintained illumination are thought to mediate transient inhibitory input to ganglion cells. The excitation of these transient amacrine cells is thought to be limited by inhibitory feedback to bipolar cells. We investigated the possibility...

α-Amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate (AMPA) autoreceptors exist on glutamate hippocampal terminals. Aimed at investigating whether these autoreceptors traffic constitutively, (S)AMPA-evoked [(3)H]D-ASP release from synaptosomes enriched with peptides that impede the interaction of GluA2 subunits with cytosolic proteins involved in receptor movements [namely...

We have investigated the role of AMPA receptor desensitization during transmission at a calyceal synapse. Cyclothiazide blocked the rapid desensitization of AMPA receptors and markedly prolonged the decay time of the evoked excitatory postsynaptic current (PSC). This effect was greater...
