Abstract:We investigated by (13)C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) the mechanisms underlying Li(+) effects on glutamatergic and GABAergic neurotransmission systems in the adult rat brain and in primary cultures of cortical neurons and astrocytes during the metabolism of (1-(13)C) glucose or (2-(13)C) acetate. Adult male rats receiving a single dose of Li(+) intraperitoneally (7 mmol/kg) were infused 2 hr later, for 60 min, with (1-(13)C) glucose (80 mumol/min/kg) or (2-(13)C) acetate (240 micromol/min/kg). High-resolut…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
