Port-a-Patch data and applications:
Cells were kindly provided by SB Drug Discovery.
The AMPA receptor (GluA2) was activated by increasing concentrations of glutamate on the Port-a-Patch. L-glutamate was applied for approximately 500 ms in increasing concentrations (left) and a cumulative concentration response curve for glutamate was constructed for 8 cells (right). The fast activation of GluA2 could be captured at higher concentrations (inset; 1 mM).
