N2 - A common function of group III metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) located at the presynaptic site of a glutamatergic synapse is synaptic depression. Here, we studied synaptic depression mediated by group III mGluR activation at Schaffer collateral-CA1 (SC-CA1) synapses and associational-commissural-CA3 (AC-CA3) synapses by recording field excitatory postsynaptic potentials in the in vitro brain slice preparation. In order to gauge the impact of synaptic depression in chronically epileptic tissue, we compared rats after pilocarpine-induced status epilepticus (post-SE) with control animals. We observed that synaptic transmission at control AC-CA3 ...
Current therapies for Parkinsons disease are able to ameliorate the symptoms in the early stages, however as the disease progresses, they become less effective and patients often develop debilitating side effects. There is currently a significant unmet need for disease modifying or neuroprotective drugs to slow the rate of disease progression and provide long-term symptomatic relief. Novel therapeutics that can provide symptomatic relief whilst attenuating the ongoing neurodegeneration are therefore sought. The targeting of metabotropic glutamate (mGlu) receptors has become a therapeutic focus in recent years. The group III mGlu receptors are the focus of this thesis as they currently hold the most therapeutic promise, with evidence suggesting activation of these receptors not only modulates aberrant neurotransmission in the basal ganglia to provide symptom relief, but also provides neuroprotective effects in the nigrostriatal system through a variety of mechanisms. Recent advances in the ...

The role of phospholipase C-coupled (group I) metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluR1 and mGluR5) in post-traumatic neuronal injury was examined using rat in vivo and in vitro models. Traumatic injury to mixed neuronal/glial cultures induced phosphoinositide hydrolysis and caused neuronal death. Pharmacological blockade of group I receptors significantly reduced these effects in vitro and decreased neurological deficits as well as neuronal loss produced by traumatic brain injury in vivo. In contrast, activation of group I receptors by a specific agonist in vitro exacerbated post-traumatic neuronal death in a dose-dependent manner. Antisense oligodeoxynucleotide directed to mGluR1, but not to mGluR5, was neuroprotective in vitro, although each oligodeoxynucleotide reduced the respective receptor-stimulated accumulation of inositol phosphates to a similar degree. Together, these findings suggest that activation of mGluR1 contributes to post-traumatic neuronal injury and that mGluR1 antagonists may have

TY - JOUR. T1 - Dexamethasone attenuates kainate-induced AP-1 activation in rat brain. AU - Unlap, Tino. AU - Jope, Richard S.. PY - 1994/7. Y1 - 1994/7. N2 - The goal of this investigation was to determine if administration of the synthetic glucocorticoid dexamethasone modulates rat brain AP-1 DNA binding activity. Treatment with the selective excitatory amino acid agonist kainate was used to activate AP-1 formation. Kainate (12 mg/kg) administration induced a biphasic activation of AP-1 in rat cerebral cortex and hippocampus with maximal levels observed at 1.5 h and 4.5 h and lower levels at 3 h and 6 h. Kainate also induced biphasic increases in the concentrations of some of the AP-1 constituent proteins (immediate early gene protein products), with initial increases of c-Jun, Fos, and Jun B occurring at 1.5 h and secondary larger increases at 4.5 h, but the level of Jun D was not altered by kainate treatment. Pretreatment with dexamethasone (1 mg/kg) reduced AP-1 activity at both 1.5 h and ...

Several genes encoding proapoptotic proteins also elevated expression right after NMDA injection: Amounts of Stat1 mRNA were significantly improved at 24 h, and caspase one mRNA was threefold and fourfold elevated in contrast to controls at 24 h and 48 h, respectively. In contrast, monocyte chemotactic protein 1 , a cytokine involved with recruiting white blood cells to websites of infection or inflammation , was similarly expressed from the NMDA and PBS handled retinas, despite the fact that a tendency for greater expression was detected in NMDA retinas at 24 h right after injection.

AU - Wenthold, Robert J.. AU - Worley, Paul F. PY - 1999/9/3. Y1 - 1999/9/3. N2 - The molecular basis for glutamate receptor trafficking to the plasma membrane is not understood. In the present study, we demonstrate that Homer 1b (H1b), a constitutively expressed splice form of the immediate early gene product Homer (now termed Homer 1a) regulates the trafficking and surface expression of group I metabotropic glutamate receptors. H1b inhibits surface expression of the metabotropic glutamate receptor mGluR5 in heterologous cells, causing mGluR5 to be retained in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). In contrast, mGluR5 alone or mGluR5 coexpressed with Homer 1a successfully travels through the secretory pathway to the plasma membrane. In addition, point mutations that disrupt mGluR5 binding to H1b eliminate ER retention of ...

A family of metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) has been elucidated by molecular cloning. To study the possible modulatory role of mGluRs in synaptic transmission, we tested the effect of a mGluR agonist, (±)-l-aminocyclopentane-trans-l,3-dicarboxylic acid (trans-ACPD), on the excitatory post-synaptic currents (EPSCS) recorded from neurons in thin slices of rat visual cortex, by using the whole-cell patch-clamp method. We found that trans-ACPD) markedly suppressed the evoked EPSCS without affecting the mean amplitude of spontaneous miniature EPSCS. This effect on the evoked EPSCS was blocked by a potassium channel blocker, 4-aminopyridine (4-AP) in a dose-dependent manner We suggest that trans-ACPD presynaptically inhibits EPSCS by a mechanism involving the 4-AP-sensitive channels. ...
Metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) are G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) that contribute to the regulation of integrative brain functions such as cognition, motor control, and neural development. Metabotropic glutamate receptors are members of a unique class of GPCRs (class III) that include the calcium sensing and γ-aminobutyric acid type B receptors. Although mGluRs bear little sequence homology to well-characterized members of the GPCR superfamily, both second messenger-dependent protein kinases and G protein-coupled receptor kinases (GRKs) contribute to mGluR desensitization. Therefore, in the present study, we examined whether β-arrestins, regulators of GPCR desensitization and endocytosis, are required for mGluR1a desensitization and internalization in human embryonic kidney (HEK) 293 cells. Unlike what has been reported for other GPCRs, we find that in response to agonist stimulation, mGluR1a internalization is selectively mediated by β-arrestin1 in HEK 293 cells. However, ...
Metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) are coupled to effector systems through GTP-binding proteins (G-proteins) and appear to mediate slow synaptic responses in the CNS. Although mGluR-mediated increases in phosphoinositide hydrolysis have been well characterized, other mechanisms for signal transduction employed by mGluRs are poorly understood. We recently reported that the selective mGluR agonist 1- aminocyclopentane-1 S,3R-dicarboxylic acid (1S,3R-ACPD) increases cAMP accumulation in rat hippocampal slices. We have now investigated the mechanisms involved in this response. A number of G-protein-linked receptors that are not directly coupled to adenylate cyclase increase cAMP accumulation by potentiating cAMP responses to other agonists. Furthermore, previous studies suggest that glutamate increases cAMP accumulation by a mechanism that is dependent upon the presence of endogenous adenosine. Therefore, we tested the hypothesis that 1S,3R- ACPD-stimulated increases in cAMP accumulation in ...
Immunoreactivity for the group I mGluRs was observed in neuropil of the dendritic fields of the hippocampal principal cells as described previously (Luján et al., 1996), whereas immunoreactivity for the group II and group III mGluRs was observed more or less in a laminated fashion corresponding to the terminal zones of the major hippocampal pathways (Fig. 2). All hippocampal fields were immunopositive for mGluR5 and mGluR7a, whereas immunoreactivity for the other mGluRs was restricted to some areas or layers in the hippocampus. Immunoreactivity for mGluR6 was hardly detected in the hippocampus (Fig.2 G).. For the group I mGluRs, we used the antibodies reactive to all splice variants of mGluR1 (pan mGluR1) and mGluR5, as well as the mGluR1α-specific antibody. In CA1 dendritic fields, only the mGluR5 antibody showed intense immunolabeling of neuropil, whereas the pan mGluR1 and mGluR5 antibodies revealed similar patterns of immunolabeling in CA3 dendritic fields and dentate molecular layer ...

Results: We ...
Metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) play key roles in the modulation of many synapses. Chloride (Cl(-)) is known to directly bind and regulate the function of different actors of neuronal activity, and several studies have pointed to the possible modulation of mGluRs by Cl(-). Herein, we demonstrate that Cl(-) behaves as a positive allosteric modulator of mGluRs. For example, whereas glutamate potency was 3.08 ± 0.33 μM on metabotropic glutamate (mGlu) 4 receptors in high-Cl(-) buffer, signaling activity was almost abolished in low Cl(-) in cell-based assays. Cl(-) potency was 78.6 ± 3.5 mM. Cl(-) possesses a high positive cooperativity with glutamate (Hill slope ≈6 on mGlu4), meaning that small variations in [Cl(-)] lead to large variations in glutamate action. Using molecular modeling and mutagenesis, we have identified 2 well-conserved Cl(-) binding pockets in the extracellular domain of mGluRs. Moreover, modeling of activity-dependent Cl(-) variations at GABAergic synapses ...

AU - Nabeshima, Toshitaka. PY - 1994. Y1 - 1994. N2 - We attempted to measure the change in the nerve growth factor (NGF) content in the hippocampus and parietal cortex following basal-forebrain lesions induced by ibotenic acid and electrolysis. The NGF content of the parietal cortex and hippocampus increased transiently on days 3 to 7, and then returned to the control level on day 14 after the lesion of the basal forebrain induced by ibotenic acid. Ibotenic acid decreased both the choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) activity in the parietal cortex and the dopamine content in the striatum. Electrolytic lesions of the basal forebrain decreased the dopamine content in the striatum, but did not affect the NGF content and ChAT activity in any of the brain regions examined. These results suggest that the ...

Microglia are the immune cell of the central nervous system and become reactive in response to infection or trauma. In Multiple Sclerosis (MS) microglia show early reactivity which may contribute to subsequent neurotoxicity. Glutamate has been implicated in the neurodegeneration in MS. Microglia express subtypes of metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs), the activation of which can lead to microglial evoked neurotoxicity (group II) or neuroprotection (group III). This suggests that release of glutamate from neurones or glial cells may activate microglia via these receptors. Increased microglial reactivity during disease is possibly due to an imbalance of mGluR expression with neurotoxic group II increased above neuroprotective group III mGluRs. Microglial expression of mGluR subtypes was therefore investigated on activated compared with untreated cells. It was found that microglia exposed to myelin expressed increased levels of group II and mGluRl and 8 subtypes compared with control cells. ...

Glutamate ((S)-Glu) is the major excitatory amino acid in the central nervous system. It acts by stimulating ionotropic and metabotropic glutamate receptors (iGluR and mGluR respectively). Glutamate has been shown to be involved not only in many neuropathologies such as anxiety, pain, ischemia, Parkinsons disease, epilepsy and schizophrenia. More recently, mGlu receptors have also been detected in non-neuronal cells suggesting that they could be implicated in carcinogenesis.. mGlu receptors are G-protein-coupled receptors and eight subtypes (mGluR1 to mGluR8) have been identified and classified into three groups (I-III) based upon sequence homology, transduction mechanism and pharmacological profile.. Because of their modulating properties, mGlu receptors are recognized as promising therapeutic targets and many ligands (agonists and antagonists) have been prepared to better understand the pharmacology of mGlu receptors in order to selectively activate the different groups and subtypes of ...
Metabotropic glutamate receptors are G-protein coupled receptors that respond to glutamate by activating proteins inside nerve cells that affect cell metabolism, thereby fine-tuning the signals sent between cells to maintain balance in neuronal activity. Metabotropic Glutamate receptors (mGluR5) are Group I receptors localized post-synaptically and found in several regions of the brain including the striatum, hippocampus, amygdala, and cortex. Activation of mGluR5 stimulates phospholipase C, resulting in phosphoinositide hydrolysis and increase of intracellular Ca2+ levels. Several potent antagonists for mGluR5 have been developed, including 6 methyl-2-(phenylethynyl)pyridine (MPEP) and 3-[(2-methyl-1,3-thiazol-4yl)ethynyl] pyridine (MTEP) however, no simple derivatives of MPEP or MTEP had proven to be useful for in vivo imaging.. In the present protocol, we will use a new PET ligand [(18)F]SP203 for two reasons: Part 1.) we will perform kinetic brain imaging to quantify mGluR5 binding ...

NMDA receptors are glutamate- and glycine-gated channels that mediate fast excitatory transmission in the central nervous system and are critical to synaptic development, plasticity and integration. They have a rich complement of modulatory sites, which represent important pharmacologic targets. Ifenprodil is a well-tolerated NMDA receptor inhibitor; it is selective for GluN2B-containing receptors; and has neuroprotective effects. The mechanism by which ifenprodil inhibits NMDA receptor responses is not fully understood. The inhibition is incomplete and non-competitive with other known NMDA receptor agonists or modulators, although reciprocal effects have been reported between ifenprodil potency and that of extracellular ligands including glutamate, glycine, zinc, protons and polyamines. Recently, structural studies revealed that ifenprodil binds to a unique site at the interface between the extracellular N-termini of GluN1 and GluN2B subunits supporting the view that interactions with other ...
