Neuropeptide cycloprolylglycine is an endogenous positive modulator of AMPA receptors
We have previously shown that neuropeptide cycloprolylglycine (CPG) increases the content of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the culture of neuronal cells under normal conditions and in pathology. This is the first study to show that CPG at a physiological concentration of 10–6 M significantly enhances the transmembrane AMPA currents in rat cerebellar Purkinje cells. Thus, CPG is a positive endogenous modulator of AMPA receptors. It was assumed that the neuropsychotropic effects of CPG are implemented as a result of BDNF accumulation after the activation of AMPA receptors by this neuropeptide.
