- Ventral tegmental area glutamate neurons: electrophysiological properties and projectionsThomas S Hnasko
Department of Physiology, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, California 94143, USA
J Neurosci 32:15076-85. 2012..Thus, glutamate neurons form a physiologically and anatomically distinct subpopulation of VTA projection neurons...
- Dopaminergic terminals in the nucleus accumbens but not the dorsal striatum corelease glutamateGarret D Stuber
Ernest Gallo Clinic and Research Center, University of California, San Francisco, Emeryville, California 94608, USA
J Neurosci 30:8229-33. 2010..Thus, the unique ability of NAc-projecting dopamine neurons to synchronously activate both dopamine and glutamate receptors may have crucial implications for the ability to respond to motivationally significant stimuli...
- Pathway-specific genetic attenuation of glutamate release alters select features of competition-based visual circuit refinementSelina M Koch
Neuroscience Graduate Program, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA
Neuron 71:235-42. 2011....
- Presynaptic regulation of quantal size: K+/H+ exchange stimulates vesicular glutamate transportGermaine Y Goh
Department of Physiology, Graduate Program in Neuroscience, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA
Nat Neurosci 14:1285-92. 2011..Manipulating presynaptic K(+) at a glutamatergic synapse influenced quantal size, indicating that synaptic vesicle K(+)/H(+) exchange regulates glutamate release and synaptic transmission...
- Neurotransmitter corelease: mechanism and physiological roleThomas S Hnasko
Departments of Physiology and Neurology, University of California, San Francisco, California 94158 2517, USA
Annu Rev Physiol 74:225-43. 2012..Corelease thus serves multiple roles in synaptic transmission...
- Vesicular glutamate transport promotes dopamine storage and glutamate corelease in vivoThomas S Hnasko
Departments of Physiology and Neurology, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94158, USA
Neuron 65:643-56. 2010..Remarkably, low concentrations of glutamate acidify synaptic vesicles more slowly but to a greater extent than equimolar Cl(-), indicating a distinct, presynaptic mechanism to regulate quantal size...
- Glutamatergic neurotransmission from melanopsin retinal ganglion cells is required for neonatal photoaversion but not adult pupillary light reflexAnton Delwig
Department of Ophthalmology, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, California, United States of America
PLoS ONE 8:e83974. 2013..We speculate that this complementary signaling might be due to PACAP neurotransmission from mRGCs. ..
