    J Neurosci 33:9150-60. 2013
    ..8 to 1 and N1/N2B receptors by 3.2 to 1. Our results suggest that triheteromeric NMDA receptors must either be preferentially assembled or preferentially localized at synapses...
  2. pmc Amino-terminal ligands prolong NMDA Receptor-mediated EPSCs
    Kenneth R Tovar
    Vollum Institute, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon 97239, USA
    J Neurosci 32:8065-73. 2012
    ..By prolonging EPSCs, amino-terminal ligands could markedly affect the computational properties of NMDA receptors and could potentially be exploited for therapeutic purposes...
  3. pmc Direct actions of carbenoxolone on synaptic transmission and neuronal membrane properties
    Kenneth R Tovar
    Vollum Institute, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon 97239, USA
    J Neurophysiol 102:974-8. 2009
    ..Thus effects of carbenoxolone on network activity cannot be interpreted as resulting from specific block of gap junctions...

    Bryan W Luikart
    The Vollum Institute, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon 97239, USA
    J Neurosci 31:4345-54. 2011
    ..Because reductions in Pten affected mature granule cells as well as developing granule cells, we suggest that the disruption of circuit function by Pten hypofunction may be ongoing well beyond early development...

    Kenneth R Tovar
    Vollum Institute, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR 97201, USA
    Neuron 34:255-64. 2002
    ..Our results indicate that NMDA receptors can move laterally between synaptic and extrasynaptic pools, providing evidence for a dynamic organization of synaptic NMDA receptors in the postsynaptic complex...
