Glutamate and GABA Receptors and Transporters: Structure, Function and Pharmacology

The ubiquitous presence of glutamate and GABA receptors in the nervous system makes these receptor systems central to our understanding of neurotransmission. Cloning of the molecular components of these receptor systems has provided insights into the selectivity of many drugs, and detailed characterization at the molecular level is emerging.

In addition, the continued development of novel and selective drugs has yielded detailed information on the mechanism of receptor activation and regulation. However, the rapid development of various aspects of glutamate and GABA receptor research makes it increasingly difficult to obtain a general overview of the field. The study of receptors is a multidisciplinary task involving many specialized techniques.

This book provides the latest discoveries in the basic concepts in the field of glutamate and GABA receptor research. Glutamate and GABA Receptors and Transporters: Structure, Function and Pharmacology is suitable for postgraduate students studying ligand gated channels, but is also useful for industrial and academic research scientists in glutamate and GABA. Universities offering programs in neuroscience, molecular pharmacology, or medicinal chemistry will find this a valuable reference.
