Mechanisms of glutamate release from astrocytes

Erik B. Malarkey, Vladimir Parpura
2008 Neurochemistry International  
The source of Ca 2+ for the Ca 2+ -dependent exocytotic release of glutamate from astrocytes predominately comes from endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stores; both inositol trisphoshphate (IP 3 )-and ryanodine-sensitive  ...  Taken together, ER, extracellular space and mitochondria, can vary concentration of cytosolic Ca 2+ which in turn can regulate Ca 2+ -dependent vesicular glutamate release from astrocytes.  ...  Certain heterozygote mutants exhibit altered wing posture, flight defects, increased spontaneous firing in the Dorso-longitudinal muscles (DLMs) and loss of rhythmic flight patterns (both initiation and  ...
