Abstract

The kainate receptors mediate some of the excitarory effects of glutamate by regulating the opening of voltage independent cation selective channels. Their presence on living brain cells is nowadays monitored electrophysiologically by measuring the changes of cell membrane conductance produced by kainic and domoic acids in the absence or presence of kainate receptor antagonists such as gammaglutamyglycine and CNQX.
