    ..The loss of hEAAT5v could, therefore, represent an early pathological change in the development of AMD and might be involved in its aetiology. ..

    ..We conclude that exon-4 skipping GLT 1 is abundantly expressed in the brain and may represent either a functional glutamate transporter or a modulator of glutamate transporter function. ..

    ..We conclude that EAAT5 is a widely distributed protein. Whether it functions in all locations as a glutamate transporter, or mainly as a glutamate-gated chloride conductance, remains to be determined. ..

    ..We discuss ways how to test the hypothesis as well as potential significance of some of the tests as tools in the diagnostics of chronic alcoholism. ..
