Effect of corticotropin-like intermediate lobe peptide on presynaptic and postsynaptic glutamate receptors and postsynaptic GABA receptors in rat brain.


PMID 19529852

Abstract

We studied the effect of corticotropin-like intermediate lobe peptide (CLIP) on presynaptic NMDA receptors and postsynaptic GABA, NMDA, and AMPA receptors in rat brain. CLIP inhibited presynaptic and postsynaptic NMDA receptors, but potentiated postsynaptic GABA and AMPA receptors. Our results indicate that CLIP modulates function of ionotropic receptors for glutamate and GABA.
