Pseudomonas aeruginosa exoenzyme S is a biglutamic acid ADP-ribosyltransferase. (1/9130)

Kinetic analysis of two mutations within Pseudomonas aeruginosa exoenzyme S (ExoS) showed that a E379D mutation inhibited expression of ADP-ribosyltransferase activity but had little effect on the expression of NAD glycohydrolase activity while a E381D mutation inhibited expression of both activities. These data identify ExoS as a biglutamic acid ADP-ribosyltransferase, where E381 is the catalytic residue and E379 contributes to the transfer of ADP-ribose to the target protein.  (+info)

Biochemical and electrophysiological studies on the mechanism of action of PNU-151774E, a novel antiepileptic compound. (2/9130)

PNU-151774E [(S)-(+)-2-(4-(3-fluorobenzyloxy)benzylamino)propanamide methanesulfonate], a new anticonvulsant that displays a wide therapeutic window, has a potency comparable or superior to that of most classic anticonvulsants. PNU-151774E is chemically unrelated to current antiepileptics. In animal seizure models it possesses a broad spectrum of action. In the present study, the action mechanism of PNU-151774E has been investigated using electrophysiological and biochemical assays. Binding studies performed with rat brain membranes show that PNU-151774E has high affinity for binding site 2 of the sodium channel receptor, which is greater than that of phenytoin or lamotrigine (IC50, 8 microM versus 47 and 185 microM, respectively). PNU-151774E reduces sustained repetitive firing in a use-dependent manner without modifying the first action potential in hippocampal cultured neurons. In the same preparation PNU-151774E inhibits tetrodotoxin-sensitive fast sodium currents and high voltage-activated calcium currents under voltage-clamp conditions. These electrophysiological activities of PNU-151774E correlate with its ability to inhibit veratrine and KCl-induced glutamate release in rat hippocampal slices (IC50, 56.4 and 185.5 microM, respectively) and calcium inward currents in mouse cortical neurons. On the other hand, PNU-151774E does not affect whole-cell gamma-aminobutryic acid- and glutamate-induced currents in cultured mouse cortical neurons. These results suggest that PNU-151774E exerts its anticonvulsant activity, at least in part, through inhibition of sodium and calcium channels, stabilizing neuronal membrane excitability and inhibiting transmitter release. The possible relevance of these pharmacological properties to its antiepileptic potential is discussed.  (+info)

Role of folylpolyglutamate synthetase and folylpolyglutamate hydrolase in methotrexate accumulation and polyglutamylation in childhood leukemia. (3/9130)

Inefficient polyglutamylation is a mechanism of resistance to methotrexate (MTX) in childhood T-lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) and in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in comparison with childhood c/preB-ALL. We analyzed the profile of MTX polyglutamylation in childhood c/preB-ALL, T-ALL, and AML (n = 45, 15, and 14, respectively), the activity of the MTX-polyglutamate synthesizing enzyme folylpolyglutamate synthetase (FPGS) (n = 39, 11, and 19, respectively) and of the MTX-polyglutamate breakdown enzyme folylpolyglutamate hydrolase (FPGH) (n = 98, 25, and 34, respectively). MTX-Glu4-6 accumulation after 24 hours exposure to 1 micromol/L [3H]-MTX in vitro was lower in T-ALL (threefold) and AML (fourfold) compared with c/preB-ALL (P +info)

Activation of metabotropic glutamate receptors modulates the voltage-gated sustained calcium current in a teleost horizontal cell. (4/9130)

In the teleost retina, cone horizontal cells contain a voltage-activated sustained calcium current, which has been proposed to be involved in visual processing. Recently, several studies have demonstrated that modulation of voltage-gated channels can occur through activation of metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs). Because glutamate is the excitatory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate retina, we have used whole cell electrophysiological techniques to examine the effect of mGluR activation on the sustained voltage-gated calcium current found in isolated cone horizontal cells in the catfish retina. In pharmacological conditions that blocked voltage-gated sodium and potassium channels, as well as N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) and non-NMDA channels, application of L-glutamate or 1-aminocyclopentane-1,3-dicarboxylic acid (1S,3R-ACPD) to voltage-clamped cone horizontal cells acted to increase the amplitude of the calcium current, expand the activation range of the calcium current by 10 mV into the cell's physiological operating range, and shift the peak calcium current by -5 mV. To identify and characterize the mGluR subtypes found on catfish cone horizontal cells, agonists of group I, group II, or group III mGluRs were applied via perfusion. Group I and group III mGluR agonists mimicked the effect of L-glutamate or 1S,3R-ACPD, whereas group II mGluR agonists had no effect on L-type calcium current activity. Inhibition studies demonstrated that group I mGluR antagonists significantly blocked the modulatory effect of the group I mGluR agonist, (S)-3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine. Similar results were obtained when the group III mGluR agonist, L-2-amino-4-phosphonobutyric acid, was applied in the presence of a group III mGluR antagonist. These results provide evidence for two groups of mGluR subtypes on catfish cone horizontal cells. Activation of these mGluRs is linked to modulation of the voltage-gated sustained calcium current.  (+info)

Antagonist activity of alpha-substituted 4-carboxyphenylglycine analogues at group I metabotropic glutamate receptors expressed in CHO cells. (5/9130)

1. We have investigated the antagonist properties of 6 alpha-substituted phenylglycine analogues based on the structure of 4-carboxyphenylglycine (4-CPG) for group I metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGlu1alpha and mGlu5a) permanently expressed in CHO cells. 2. (S)-4-CPG and (S)-MCPG were the most selective mGlu1alpha receptor antagonists. Longer chain alpha-carbon substitutions resulted in a progressive loss of antagonist affinity at mGlu1alpha receptors but not at mGlu5a receptors. Thus mGlu1alpha receptor antagonists require small aliphatic groups at the alpha-position. Alpha-cyclopropyl-4-CPG showed a tendency towards mGlu5a selectivity, suggesting that bulky groups at this position may favour mGlu5a receptor antagonism. 3. We demonstrate that the mGlu5a receptor displays agonist-dependent antagonism. L-glutamate-induced Ca2+ release in mGlu5a receptor expressing cells was more susceptible to antagonism by cyclic alpha-carbon derivatives than (S)-3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine (DHPG)-induced Ca2+ release in the same cell line. 4. The data presented suggests that mGlu1alpha and mGlu5a receptors have different steric and/or conformational requirements for the binding of antagonists and different amino acids which could interact with agonists. 5. These phenylglycine analogues could provide leads for the development of subtype selective antagonists.  (+info)

CPCCOEt, a noncompetitive metabotropic glutamate receptor 1 antagonist, inhibits receptor signaling without affecting glutamate binding. (6/9130)

Metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) are a family of G protein-coupled receptors characterized by a large, extracellular N-terminal domain comprising the glutamate-binding site. In the current study, we examined the pharmacological profile and site of action of the non-amino-acid antagonist 7-hydroxyiminocyclopropan[b]chromen-1a-carboxylic acid ethyl ester (CPCCOEt). CPCCOEt selectively inhibited glutamate-induced increases in intracellular calcium at human mGluR1b (hmGluR1b) with an apparent IC50 of 6.5 microM while having no agonist or antagonist activity at hmGluR2, -4a, -5a, -7b, and -8a up to 100 microM. Schild analysis indicated that CPCCOEt acts in a noncompetitive manner by decreasing the efficacy of glutamate-stimulated phosphoinositide hydrolysis without affecting the EC50 value or Hill coefficient of glutamate. Similarly, CPCCOEt did not displace [3H]glutamate binding to membranes prepared from mGluR1a-expressing cells. To elucidate the site of action, we systematically exchanged segments and single amino acids between hmGluR1b and the related subtype, hmGluR5a. Substitution of Thr815 and Ala818, located at the extracellular surface of transmembrane segment VII, with the homologous amino acids of hmGluR5a eliminated CPCCOEt inhibition of hmGluR1b. In contrast, introduction of Thr815 and Ala818 at the homologous positions of hmGluR5a conferred complete inhibition by CPCCOEt (IC50 = 6.6 microM), i.e., a gain of function. These data suggest that CPCCOEt represents a novel class of G protein-coupled receptor antagonists inhibiting receptor signaling without affecting ligand binding. We propose that the interaction of CPCCOEt with Thr815 and Ala818 of mGluR1 disrupts receptor activation by inhibiting an intramolecular interaction between the agonist-bound extracellular domain and the transmembrane domain.  (+info)

Conformation-dependent inhibition of gastric H+,K+-ATPase by SCH 28080 demonstrated by mutagenesis of glutamic acid 820. (7/9130)

Gastric H+,K+-ATPase can be inhibited by imidazo pyridines like 2-methyl-8-[phenylmethoxy] imidazo-(1,2a) pyridine 3-acetonitrile (SCH 28080). The drug shows a high affinity for inhibition of K+-activated ATPase and for prevention of ATP phosphorylation. The inhibition by SCH 28080 can be explained by assuming that SCH 28080 binds to both the E2 and the phosphorylated intermediate (E2-P) forms of the enzyme. We observed recently that some mutants, in which glutamic acid 820 present in transmembrane domain six of the catalytic subunit had been replaced (E820Q, E820N, E820A), lost their K+-sensitivity and showed constitutive ATPase activity. This ATPase activity could be inhibited by similar SCH 28080 concentrations as the K+-activated ATPase of the wild-type enzyme. SCH 28080 also inhibited ATP phosphorylation at 21 degrees C of the mutants E820D, E820N, and E820A, although with varying efficacy and affinity. ATP-phosphorylation of mutant E820Q was not inhibited by SCH 28080; in contrast, the phosphorylation level at 21 degrees C was nearly doubled. These findings can be explained by assuming that mutation of Glu820 favors the E1 conformation in the order E820Q >E820A >E820N >wild-type = E820D. The increase in the phosphorylation level of the E820Q mutant can be explained by assuming that during the catalytic cycle the E2-P intermediate forms a complex with SCH 28080. This intermediate hydrolyzes considerably slower than E2-P and thus accumulates. The high tendency of the E820Q mutant for the E1 form is further supported by experiments showing that ATP phosphorylation of this mutant is rather insensitive towards vanadate, inorganic phosphate, and K+.  (+info)

Glutamate-, kainate- and NMDA-evoked membrane currents in identified glial cells in rat spinal cord slice. (8/9130)

The effect of L-glutamate, kainate and N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) on membrane currents of astrocytes, oligodendrocytes and their respective precursors was studied in acute spinal cord slices of rats between the ages of postnatal days 5 and 13 using the whole-cell patch-clamp technique. L-glutamate (10(-3) M), kainate (10(-3) M), and NMDA (2x10(-3) M) evoked inward currents in all glial cells. Kainate evoked larger currents in precursors than in astrocytes and oligodendrocytes, while NMDA induced larger currents in astrocytes and oligodendrocytes than in precursors. Kainate-evoked currents were blocked by the AMPA/kainate receptor antagonist CNQX (10(-4) M) and were, with the exception of the precursors, larger in dorsal than in ventral horns, as were NMDA-evoked currents. Currents evoked by NMDA were unaffected by CNQX and, in contrast to those seen in neurones, were not sensitive to Mg2+. In addition, they significantly decreased during development and were present when synaptic transmission was blocked in a Ca2+-free solution. NMDA-evoked currents were not abolished during the block of K+ inward currents in glial cells by Ba2+; thus they are unlikely to be mediated by an increase in extracellular K+ during neuronal activity. We provide evidence that spinal cord glial cells are sensitive to the application of L-glutamate, kainate and transiently, during postnatal development, to NMDA.  (+info)

During operations, neurosurgeons usually perform multiple temporary occlusions of parental artery, possibly resulting in the neuronal damage. It is generally thought that neuronal damage by cerebral ischemia is associated with extracellular concentrations of the excitatory amino acids. In this study, we measured the dynamics of extracellular glutamate release in 11 vessel occlusion(VO) model to compare between single occlusion and repeated transient occlusions within short interval. Changes in cerebral blood flow were monitored by laser-Doppler flowmetry simultaneously with cortical glutamate level measured by amperometric biosensor. From real time monitoring of glutamate release in 11 VO model, the change of extracellular glutamate level in repeated transient occlusion group was smaller than that of single occlusion group, and the onset time of glutamate release in the second ischemic episode of repeated occlusion group was delayed compared to the first ischemic episode which was similar to that of
Although being a physiologically important excitatory neurotransmitter, glutamate plays a pivotal role in various neurological disorders including ischemic neurological diseases. Its level is increased during cerebral ischemia with excessive neurological stimulation causing the glutamate-induced neuronal toxicity, excitotoxicity, and this is considered the triggering spark in the ischemic neuronal damage. The glutamatergic stimulation will lead to rise in the intracellular sodium and calcium, and the elevated intracellular calcium will lead to mitochondrial dysfunction, activation of proteases, accumulation of reactive oxygen species and release of nitric oxide. Interruption of the cascades of glutamate-induced cell death during ischemia may provide a way to prevent, or at least reduce, the ischemic damage. Various therapeutic options are suggested interrupting the glutamatergic pathways, e.g., inhibiting the glutamate synthesis or release, increasing its clearance, blocking of its receptors or ...

PY - 1995/4/25. Y1 - 1995/4/25. N2 - Using an antibody highly specific for D-serine conjugated to glutaraldehyde, we have localized endogenous D-serine in rat brain. Highest levels of D-serine immunoreactivity occur in the gray matter of the cerebral cortex, hippocampus, anterior olfactory nucleus, olfactory tubercle, and amygdala. Localizations of D-serine immunoreactivity correlate closely with those of D-serine binding to the glycine modulatory site of the N-methyl-D- aspartate (NMDA) receptor as visualized by autoradiography and are inversely correlated to the presence of D-amino acid oxidase. D-Serine is enriched in process-bearing glial cells in neuropil with the morphology of protoplasmic astrocytes. In glial cultures of rat cerebral cortex, D-serine is enriched in type 2 astrocytes.

We now report data demonstrating a neuroprotective function of integrins in embryonic hippocampal neurons. Neurons grown on laminin, an integrin ligand, exhibit increased resistance to glutamate-induced apoptosis compared with neurons grown on polylysine. Neurons expressed integrin β1 and treatment of cultures ...
Excitotoxicity is the pathological process by which nerve cells are damaged or killed by excessive stimulation by neurotransmitters such as glutamate and similar substances. This occurs when receptors for the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate (glutamate receptors) such as the NMDA receptor and AMPA receptor are overactivated by glutamatergic storm. Excitotoxins like NMDA and kainic acid which bind to these receptors, as well as pathologically high levels of glutamate, can cause excitotoxicity by allowing high levels of calcium ions (Ca2+) to enter the cell. Ca2+ influx into cells activates a number of enzymes, including phospholipases, endonucleases, and proteases such as calpain. These enzymes go on to damage cell structures such as components of the cytoskeleton, membrane, and DNA. Excitotoxicity may be involved in spinal cord injury, stroke, traumatic brain injury, hearing loss (through noise overexposure or ototoxicity), and in neurodegenerative diseases of the central nervous system ...
Wild-type GluN1/GluN2A shows robust glutamate-activated currents (Fig. 3 A, left; −750 ± 50 pA, n = 18; n = number of whole-cell recordings). Most other tryptophan-substituted constructs also showed robust glutamate-activated current, though certain constructs showed either significantly reduced peak current amplitudes (e.g., GluN1(M813W)/GluN2A; Fig. 3 A, middle) or no detectable glutamate-activated membrane current (e.g., GluN1/GluN2A(S831W); Fig. 3 A, right). To compare current amplitudes, we normalized current amplitudes to those for wild type (Fig. 3 B and Table 1). Constructs are highlighted as to whether they showed significantly reduced current amplitudes (blue), significantly greater current amplitudes (green) or no detectable current (X, red) relative to wild type (P , 0.05, t test).. This experiment suggests several initial conclusions. First, compared with similar experiments for AMPARs, where 9 out of 23 tested positions in the M4 segment showed no detectable current (Salussolia ...

Immunoblot analysis. Synaptosomal samples were rapidly solubilized in 1-2% SDS (95°C), sonicated, and protein concentration was measured using BCA assay (Pierce, Rockford, IL), with bovine serum albumin as standard. Equal amounts of protein were subjected to SDS-PAGE and transferred onto nitrocellulose membranes. Immunoblots were done with 1:500 dilutions of the following phosphorylation state-specific antibodies: P-site 1 antibody (G-257), P-site 3 antibody (RU19), P-site 4/5 antibody (G-526), and P-site 6 antibody (G-555). The specificity of these antibodies for their respective sites has been characterized previously (Czernik et al., 1991; Jovanovic et al., 1996).

In the 1980s, Hebbs hypothesis was validated on the cellular level with the discovery that repeated stimulation of the input of particular types of cortical nerve cells strengthened their response to stimulation. The effect is known as long-term potentiation or LTP for short. Subsequently, researchers identified the molecular mechanism for LTP. A particular type of receptor for the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate plays a key role. Glutamatergic synapses are the most abundant in cerebral cortex. The receptor involved in LTP is known as N-methyl-D-aspartic acid receptor or NMDA-receptor for short. The receptor channels positively charged ions through the nerve cell membrane, increasing the the postsynaptic excitatory potential or EPSP for short. This voltage initiates electric spiking known as action potentials in the nerve cells axon. The action potentials travel along the axon to the nerve cell endings and trigger the release of neurotransmitter into the cleft of the next synapse. ...

Able to cross the blood-brain barrier, theanine has psychoactive properties.[10] Theanine has been studied for its potential ability to reduce mental and physical stress,[11] improve cognition,[12] and boost mood and cognitive performance in a synergistic manner with caffeine.[13][14][15][16][17][18]. While structurally related to the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate, theanine only has weak affinity for the glutamate receptor on postsynaptic cells.[19] Rather, its primary effect seems to increase the overall level of the brain inhibitory transmitter GABA. It also increases brain dopamine levels and has a low affinity forAMPA, kainate, and NMDA receptors.[20] Its effect on serotonin is still a matter of debate in the scientific community, with studies showing increases and decreases in brain serotonin levels using similar experimental protocols.[5][21] It has also been found that injecting spontaneously hypertensive mice with theanine significantly lowered levels of 5-hydroxyindoles in the ...

Memory impairment has been shown to be associated with glutamate (Glu) excitotoxicity, homocysteine (Hcy) accumulation, and oxidative stress. We hypothesize that Glu and Hcy could damage neuronal cells, while astaxanthin (ATX) could be beneficial to alleviate the adverse effects. Using PC12 cell model, we showed that Glu and Hcy provoked a huge amount of reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, causing mitochondrial damage at EC50 20 and 10 mm, respectively. The mechanisms of action include: (1) increasing calcium influx; (2) producing ROS; (3) initiating lipid peroxidation; (4) causing imbalance of the Bcl-2/Bax homeostasis; and (5) activating cascade of caspases involving caspases 12 and 3. Conclusively, the damages caused by Glu and Hcy to PC12 cells can be alleviated by the potent antioxidant ATX.
Apoptosis plays a key role in cell death observed in neurodegenerative diseases marked by a progressive loss of neurons as seen in Alzheimers disease. Although the exact cause of apoptosis is not known, a number of factors such as free radicals, insufficient levels of nerve growth factors and excessive levels of glutamate have been implicated. We and others, have previously reported that in a stable HT22 neuronal cell line, glutamate induces apoptosis as indicated by DNA fragmentation and up- and down-regulation of Bax (pro-apoptotic), and Bcl-2 (anti-apoptotic) genes respectively. Furthermore, these changes were reversed/inhibited by estrogens. Several lines of evidence also indicate that a family of cysteine proteases (caspases) appear to play a critical role in neuronal apoptosis. The purpose of the present study is to determine in primary cultures of cortical cells, if glutamate-induced neuronal apoptosis and its inhibition by estrogens involve changes in caspase-3 protease and whether this process

Previous studies revealed that Helt is required for GABAergic differentiation (Guimera et al., 2006b; Miyoshi et al., 2004). Our present knockout approach revealed a pivotal role for Helt in the selection of the GABAergic over glutamatergic transmitter phenotype fate. The phenotype of embryos lacking Helt in the mesencephalon was similar to that of mutants of another bHLH factor, Ptf1a, in the cerebellum and dorsal spinal cord, in which GABAergic neurons were lost and glutamatergic neurons were generated instead (Glasgow et al., 2005; Hoshino et al., 2005). Thus, specification of GABAergic neurons over glutamatergic neurons appears to be achieved using similar mechanisms with distinct bHLH factors, Helt and Ptf1a, in each brain region. However, the mechanisms of transcriptional control by these factors might be different, as Helt is a bHLH-O type transcriptional repressor and Ptf1a is a bHLH factor that heterodimerizes with E proteins and has a transcriptional activator function (Beres et al., ...

A team from Duke-NUS Medical School and the National University of Singapore discovered how a major susceptibility gene for mental illness - Disrupted-In-Schizophrenia-1 (DISC1) - regulates glutamate release and neurotransmission across synapses. This discovery provides welcome progress to the development of targeted therapies for mental illness, a field facing decline as it has been plagued by detrimental side effects, high costs, and the inability to develop treatments to treat the disease rather than just the symptoms.. Glutamate is the main excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain. The release of glutamate from nerve terminals into the synaptic cleft underlies neuron-to-neuron communication in brain regions involved in higher cognitive functions, such as learning and memory, executive planning, and mental imagery. Not surprisingly, abnormal glutamate neurotransmission is linked to major psychiatric diseases, like schizophrenia, autism and bipolar disorder. However, pinpointing the cause of ...
Electrophysiological characteristics of hippocampal neu- rones cultured with Pro-Gly-Pro peptide were studied using glutamate excitotoxisity model (excitotoxic damage was induced by 100 mkM glutamate application during 5 min).

Culturing with the peptide signi?cantly af- fected the following parameters: resting potential (-55±4 mV in control; -29±6 мV after glutamate application; -38±5 мV cultured after glutamate application), action potential am- plitude (91±4; 65±5; 84±5 mV), duration (4,3±0,4; 9,5±1,6; 5,2±0,7 ms), depolarization (56 [38, 84]; 27 [21, 35]; 46 [28, 62] мV/мs) and repolarization (-29 [-38, -27]; -20 [-21, -18]; -29 [-33, -22] мV/мs) rates. The data obtained suggest that PGP exhibit its neuroprotective properties on a level of basic electrophysiological characteristics, appropriate cellular mechanisms require further investigations ...

Both types of reciprocal antagonistic A2A-D2 receptor interactions coexist in the same cells. In fact, under normal conditions, there is a strong tonic activation of D2 receptors that blocks the ability of A2A receptors to signal through the cAMP-PKA pathway. Conversely, the antagonistic A2A-D2 receptor interaction determines the ability of A2A receptors to control the inhibitory role of D2 receptors in neuronal excitability and neurotransmitter release (Ferré et al., 2008).. In line with our previous studies (Calabresi et al., 1993; Picconi et al., 2004; Tozzi et al., 2007), we found that the application of D2 receptor agonists alone did not affect glutamate-mediated synaptic potentials/currents in striatal slices under physiological conditions. Conversely, simultaneous A2A receptor antagonism and D2 receptor activation resulted in a reduction of excitatory glutamatergic transmission. In our model, electrical stimulation of the slice mainly activates glutamatergic projections to the striatum. ...

A bit of a chemistry/biology tie in today with a series of posters looking at the chemical structures of some of the main neurotransmitters in the brain. Ive also included a little information on the main effects and roles of each underneath the structures - however, Id hasten to add that, since this is definitely more an area of interest than an area of expertise for me, Ive kept it pretty general.Its interesting looking at the structures and being able to notice the similarities. Considering the similarities in naming, the similarity between adrenaline and noradrenaline perhaps isnt too surprising, but dopamines structure isnt too far removed from either. The structures of GABA, acetylcholine and glutamate are also fairly closely related.. I selected these neurotransmitters as they are some of the most well known - however, there are in fact over 100 known agents that can act as neurotransmitters. In general, communication between neurons in the brain is accomplished by the movement of ...

AU - Dooley, David J.. AU - Jones, Roland S G. PY - 2004/9/6. Y1 - 2004/9/6. N2 - We have recently shown that the anticonvulsant drugs phenytoin, lamotrigine and sodium valproate all reduce the release of glutamate at synapses in the entorhinal cortex in vitro. In the present investigation we determined whether this property was shared by gabapentin and pregabalin, using whole-cell patch-clamp recordings of excitatory postsynaptic currents (EPSCs) in layer V neurons in slices of rat entorhinal cortex. Both drugs reduced the amplitude and increased the paired-pulse ratio of EPSCs evoked by electrical stimulation of afferent inputs, suggesting a presynaptic effect to reduce glutamate release. The frequency of spontaneous EPSCs (sEPSCs) was concurrently reduced by GBP, further supporting a presynaptic action. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The role of glutamate transporters in glutamate homeostasis in the brain. AU - Takahashi, Michiko. AU - Billups, Brian. AU - Rossi, David. AU - Sarantis, Monique. AU - Hamann, Martine. AU - Attwell, David. PY - 1997/1. Y1 - 1997/1. N2 - Glutamate transporters in neurones and glia, four of which have been cloned from mammals, play a crucial rule in controlling the extracellular glutamate concentration in the brain. In normal conditions, they remove glutamate from the extracellular space and thereby help to terminate glutamatergic synaptic transmission and to prevent the extracellular glutamate concentration from rising to neurotoxic values. Glutamate transport on these carriers is thought to be driven by the cotransport of Na+, the countertransport of K+, and either the cotransport of H+ or the counter-transport of OH-. Activating the transporters also activates an anion conductance in their structure, the anion flux through which is not coupled to glutamate movement and varies ...
A new study suggests a role for brain imaging in the assessment and potential treatment of chronic pain.. University of Michigan researchers are the first to use brain imaging procedures to track the clinical action of pregabalin, a drug that is prescribed to patients suffering from fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain.. Three different brain imaging procedures were performed - proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy, functional magnetic resonance imaging and functional connectivity magnetic resonance imaging - in 17 patients with fibromyalgia.. Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disorder thought to result from a disturbance in the way the central nervous system processes pain. It affects an estimated 3 to 6 percent of the world population.. Previous research has shown that fibromyalgia patients may have heightened neural activity in the insula, and that this excess activity may be related to elevated levels of the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate. Brain imaging in the current study suggests ...
Evidence that a catalytic glutamate and an Arginine Toggle act in concert to mediate ATP hydrolysis and mechanochemical coupling in a viral DNA packaging motor.
Glutamate is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system. Synaptic transmission at glutamatergic synapses mediates and regulates basically all aspects of brain functions. The strength of these synapses is subjected to potentiation and depression and these plastic modifications are plausible candidates for information storage in the brain. Excessive activity at glutamatergic synapses, namely excitotoxicity, occurs in many brain diseases and is a critical factor for neuronal death or degeneration. Therefore, to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying glutamatergic transmission, plasticity and excitotoxicity constitutes the first step to understand neuronal information processing, learning, memory and brain diseases.; In my dissertation, I report the results of three independent but closely related studies on synaptic transmission, plasticity and excitotoxicity, respectively. In the first part, I provide evidence that two different glutamate transporters, one ...
Glutamate has been shown to lead to neurotoxicity and subsequent neurodegeneration through changes in synaptic function, loss of glutamatergic neurons, synapses, and dendrites. All of these characteristics are also observed during aging or in age-associated neurodegenerative diseases. To probe the effects of excess glutamate and determine if these effects might contribute to the morphological and functional changes associated with aging, our laboratory generated a transgenic mouse model that over-expresses the mitochondrial glutamate dehydrogenase 1 (GLUD1) gene. This transgene was only expressed in neurons through the use of the neuron-specific enolase promoter. The Glud1 Tg mouse model generated in our laboratory demonstrated significantly increased GLUD1 levels, GLUD activity, extracellular glutamate levels, and increased glutamate release after stimulation as compared to wild type (wt). There were also many significant morphological changes observed in the Tg mice including cell layer ...
L-glutamate (Glu) is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system. Monitoring extracellular Glu is critical to understanding Glu regulation to discriminate physiological and pathological roles. To overcome the limitations of previous in vivo extracellular Glu studies, we developed Glu selective microelectrode arrays with better spatial and temporal resolutions than commonly used techniques like microdialysis. We used these microelectrode arrays to characterize basal and potassium-evoked Glu neurotransmission in the normal rat brain. We then investigated disease-related Glu alterations in a rat model of Parkinsons disease and normal Glu regulation in young and aged rhesus monkeys. In the normal anesthetized rat striatum and frontal cortex, basal Glu was regulated by active release and uptake mechanisms, fully TTX-dependent, and measured at ~2 micromolar levels. Potassium-evoked Glu kinetics were fast, concentration-dependent, and rapidly reproducible at 15-20 seconds
Excitotoxicity can occur from substances produced within the body (endogenous excitotoxins). Glutamate is a prime example of an excitotoxin in the brain, and it is also the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the mammalian CNS.[10] During normal conditions, glutamate concentration can be increased up to 1mM in the synaptic cleft, which is rapidly decreased in the lapse of milliseconds.[11] When the glutamate concentration around the synaptic cleft cannot be decreased or reaches higher levels, the neuron kills itself by a process called apoptosis.[12][13]. This pathologic phenomenon can also occur after brain injury and spinal cord injury. Within minutes after spinal cord injury, damaged neural cells within the lesion site spill glutamate into the extracellular space where glutamate can stimulate presynaptic glutamate receptors to enhance the release of additional glutamate.[14] Brain trauma or stroke can cause ischemia, in which blood flow is reduced to inadequate levels. Ischemia is followed ...
MSG is used to give a meaty, savory, or brothy taste to foods by stimulating the glutamate receptors on the tongue. There are glutamate receptors in other parts of the body, notably the brain, where glutamate is a neurotransmitter. Glutamates can be produced by fermentation of starches or sugars, but also by breaking the bonds between amino acids in proteins, leaving free amino acids. This process is done by heat or by enzymes, and is called hydrolyzing because the bonds are broken by adding water. When proteins are broken down into their constituent amino acids, the result can contain as much as 20 percent glutamates. This is why hydrolyzed vegetable protein is often listed as an ingredient in foods, to give them a meaty or savory flavor. There is evidence that some people are sensitive to free glutamates, and may get headaches or other symptoms if too much is ingested. This may be related to pyridoxine (vitamin B6) deficiencies, as this vitamin is necessary for glutamate metabolism. ...
It is generally accepted that increased glutamatergic activity, resulting from the elevated extracellular glutamate which occurs in the brain during an ischaemic episode (Benveniste et al., 1984; Baldwin et al., 1994; Lee et al., 1999), is a crucial initiating event, leading to cell death (see Szatkowski & Attwell, 1994; Kristián & Siesjö, 1998; Green et al., 2000). It has previously been reported that exposing cerebral tissue to ischaemic conditions in vitro can induce glutamate release and this has been demonstrated using cerebral tissue from both rat (Taylor et al., 1995; Roettger & Lipton, 1996; Saransaari & Oja, 1997) and human (Hegstad et al., 1996). The results from the current study confirmed these findings in prisms of rat cortex, simulating ischaemia by use of a hypoxic medium, with no added glucose. Cortical tissue was used in the current study because this region is severely compromized by occlusion of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) in vivo both in animals and humans (e.g. ...
The protective enzymes in a babys brain are still immature, and therefore are unable to effectively detoxify the excitotoxins that enter its brain. This would mean that in the case of a pregnant woman eating meals high in excitotoxin taste enhancers, the baby could be exposed to these high glutamate levels for many hours. It is not unreasonable to assume that mothers will eat several meals and snacks containing various forms of excitotoxins such as MSG, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, and aspartame. This could produce a high concentration of glutamate exposure in the babys brain several times a day. Also significant is the fact that the immature brain is four times more sensitive to the damaging effects of excitotoxins than the adult brain. Thus, following a dose of MSG, the babys blood level of glutamate may remain high for many hours. Since no experimental work can be done on pregnant women or children, we must look to animal research studies for some clues. In a study with mice and rats ...
Antibodies were raised against two distinct extracellular sequences of the rat mGluR1 metabotropic glutamate receptor expressed as bacterial fusion proteins. Both antibodies specifically reacted with mGluR1 in the rat cerebellum and inhibited the mGluR1 activity as assessed by the analysis of glutamate-stimulated inositol phosphate formation in CHO cells expressing mGluR1. Using these antibodies, we examined the role of mGluR1 in the induction of long-term depression in cultured Purkinje cells. In voltage- clamped Purkinje cells, current induced by iontophoretically applied glutamate was persistently depressed by depolarization of the Purkinje cells in conjunction with the glutamate application. The mGluR1 antibodies completely blocked the depression of glutamate-induced current. The results indicate that activation of mGluR1 is necessary for the induction of cerebellar long-term depression and that these mGluR1 antibodies can be used as selective antagonists ...
In this article, David Nicholls and David Attwell describe recent advances in our understanding of the mechanisms by which excitatory amino acids are released from cells, and of the way in which a low extracellular glutamate concentration is maintained.

Glutamate is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in humans. There have been studies to suggest that nicotine increases glutamate release by attaching to the core neurons of the brains reward system, speeding up the release of dopamine (a neurotransmitter that plays a major role in the motivational component of reward-motivated behaviour) and preventing GABA, another neurotransmitter that produces a calming effect, from slowing down dopamine release. In smoking, this effect causes a person to crave nicotine - the addictive component of cigarette smoke - perpetuating the cycle ...
Abstract Immunoinflammatory‐mediated demyelination, the main pathological feature of multiple sclerosis (MS), is regularly accompanied by neurodegenerative processes, mostly in the form of axonal degeneration, which could be initiated by glutamate excitotoxicity. In the current study, the relationship between Th17‐mediated inflammatory and excitotoxic events was investigated during an active phase of MS. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients with MS and control subjects was collected, and IL‐17A and glutamate levels were determined. IL‐17A level was significantly higher in patients with MS; whereas no statistically significant changes in glutamate concentrations were found. There was a direct correlation between IL‐17A and glutamate levels; IL‐17A levels were also associated wi...

Glutamate is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system, and in addition to its central role in fast excitatory signaling it is also involved in synaptogenesis, synaptic plasticity, and the pathogenesis of certain neurologic diseases. Although glutamate acts as a neurotransmitter in all pathways of the central nervous system, the response to glutamate is not uniform at all glutamatergic synapses and varies with the type of glutamate receptor expressed on the postsynaptic membrane. In this context, we are interested in studying synapse-specific expression of postsynaptic NMDA and metabotropic glutamate receptors. My laboratory characterizes the molecular mechanisms underlying neurotransmitter receptor transport and localization at the synapse using several research strategies which include (1) defining sorting motifs present in neurotransmitter receptor cytosolic domains, (2) isolating neurotransmitter receptor-associated proteins, and (3) determining the role ...
PMID: 31545255 Open Access Sabogal-Guaqueta AM, Hobbie F, Keerthi A, Oun A, Kortholt A, Boddeke E, Dolga A (2019) Biomed Pharmacother Abstract: Mitochondrial dysfunction and inflammation contribute to the initiation and development of several brain pathological conditions, including Alzheimers disease and cerebral ischemia. Linalool is an aromatic plant-derived monoterpene alcohol with reported anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidant properties. We investigated the role of linalool on glutamate-induced mitochondrial oxidative stress in immortalized neuronal HT-22 cells. Glutamate induced oxidative stress in neuronal cells, as detected by real-time cell impedance measurements, MTT assay, and analysis of Annexin V/PI. Administration of linalool 100 μM reduced cell death mediated by glutamate. Staining of glutamate-stimulated mitochondria by MitoTracker revealed improved morphology in the presence of linalool. Furthermore, we demonstrated a potential neuroprotective effect of linalool in conditions ...
FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] L-glutamate is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and activates both ionotropic and metabotropic glutamate receptors. Glutamatergic neurotransmission is involved in most aspects of normal brain function and can be perturbed in many neuropathologic conditions. The metabotropic glutamate receptors are a family of G protein-coupled receptors, that have been divided into 3 groups on the basis of sequence homology, putative signal transduction mechanisms, and pharmacologic properties. Group I includes GRM1 and GRM5 and these receptors have been shown to activate phospholipase C. Group II includes GRM2 and GRM3 while Group III includes GRM4, GRM6, GRM7 and GRM8. Group II and III receptors are linked to the inhibition of the cyclic AMP cascade but differ in their agonist selectivities. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. ...
NMDA receptors is a very touchy and controversial area. On one hand, NMDA activity is responsible for memory and learning. On the other hand, overstimulation of NMDA receptors causes seizures and neuron death (neurotoxicity). Glutamate is the main excitatory neurotransmitter that agonizes these receptors. Anything that reduces NMDA activity either through blocking them or through reducing glutamate has been called neuroprotective. Neuroprotection has been the focus of biomed therapies for autism. There are several theories why neuroprotection is needed for autism. First, many autistic children have abnormal EEG activity or seizures, which affect learning and language. Second, high glutamate and overstimulation of NMDA receptors is often a result of brain inflammation (encephalopathy), which is now a leading theory of autism causes. So, it is hard to debate that NMDA receptors must be protected from overstimualtion. Especially in my sons case because he had abnormal EEG until we started him on ...
During the verbal fluency task, subjects with an ARMS showed greater activation than did controls in the middle frontal gyrus bilaterally. Thalamic glutamate levels were lower in the ARMS group than in control group. Within the ARMS group, thalamic glutamate levels were negatively associated with activation in the right dorsolateral prefrontal and left orbitofrontal cortex, but positively associated with activation in the right hippocampus and in the temporal cortex bilaterally. There was also a significant group difference in the relationship between cortical activation and thalamic glutamate levels, with the control group showing correlations in the opposite direction to those in the ARMS group in the prefrontal cortex and in the right hippocampus and superior temporal gyrus ...
Excluding, it is right away known that the highest suscepti- bility to the glutamate-mediated excitotoxicity is observed in (1) mammalian male neonates in comparison to the adults, females, and other vertebrates (Garattini 1979); (2) in cerebral regions where glutamate receptors density is lofty such as hip- pocampus (Meldrum 1993b; Beas-Zarate et al. As a result, it is respected to procure improvement assessments from perfect tissues, when viable, to allocate for the benefit of the measurement of hallucinogenic extermination to the homogeniza- tion and separation procedures.

Dr. Graham L. Collingridge accepted the invitation on 18 March 2007 (self-imposed deadline: 18 June 2007). This article will briefly cover: The discovery of the NMDA receptor, its unusual properties (Mg block, slow kinetics, Ca permeability, voltage-dependence, glycine co-agonist site), its role in synaptic transmission, synaptic plasticity and diseases. The NMDA receptor is one of the four major classes of receptors that respond to L-glutamate, the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain. It is named after the synthetic chemical N-methyl-D-aspartate, which is a highly selective agonist for this receptor. THe NMDA receptor (NMDAR) has unique properties that distinguishes it from the other three major glutamate receptor classes - AMPA receptors, kainate receptors and metabotropic receptors. The NMDAR is a tetramer, which is made up from various combinations of the subunits NR1, NR2A, NR2B, NR2C, NR2D, NR3A and NR3B. Most NMDARs contain 2 NR1 subunits, which bind the co-agonist glycine and ...

One very important subset of synapses are capable of forming memory traces by means of long-lasting activity-dependent changes in synaptic strength.[39] The best-known form of neural memory is a process called long-term potentiation (abbreviated LTP), which operates at synapses that use the neurotransmitter glutamate acting on a special type of receptor known as the NMDA receptor.[40] The NMDA receptor has an associative property: if the two cells involved in the synapse are both activated at approximately the same time, a channel opens that permits calcium to flow into the target cell.[41] The calcium entry initiates a second messenger cascade that ultimately leads to an increase in the number of glutamate receptors in the target cell, thereby increasing the effective strength of the synapse. This change in strength can last for weeks or longer. Since the discovery of LTP in 1973, many other types of synaptic memory traces have been found, involving increases or decreases in synaptic strength ...

We study the properties of these glutamate transporters in expression systems as well as in acute tissue, such as the hippocampus and cerebellum. Glutamate transporters harness the energy stored in the electrochemical gradients for Na+, H+, and K+ to force glutamate into cells against its concentration gradient. Because transport is electrogenic, we can monitor transporter activity using electrophysiological (patch-clamp) techniques. To provide insight into the intrinsic properties of these transporters, we apply glutamate with sub-millisecond resolution to outside-out patches using a piezoelectric bimorph. These studies are combined with whole-cell recordings from visually-identified astrocytes and neurons in acute brain slices to monitor the activity of transporters during synaptic transmission. Through these studies we hope to determine the fate of glutamate after it is released - how far it diffuses, the types and locations of the receptors it activates, and the role of transporters in ...
