AMPA Receptor (GluA2) - Inhibition by CNQX
The AMPA receptor (GluA2) was blocked by CNQX on the Patchliner. CNQX was pre-incubated and then co-applied with glutamate. CNQX blocked the GluA2-mediated response in a concentration dependent manner and the potency was dependent on glutamate concentration (left). Exemplar GluA2-mediated responses are shown on the right activated by 100 µM glutamate and inhibited by increasing concentrations of CNQX.
