AMPA Receptor (GluA2) - Activation by Glutamate
The AMPA receptor (GluA2) was activated using different concentrations of glutamate (1 µM - 100 µM). Measured on the SyncroPatch 384PE (a predecessor model of SyncroPatch 384), the whole cell patch methodology and multi-hole chips were used.
The lower two images are displaying screenshots of single cell currents after repetitive glutamate applications:
Left: The same concentration of Glutamate was applied three times.
Right: Four different Glutamate concentrations were applied in a cumulative manner.
