Effect of compounds on [3H]L-Glu uptake by primary-cultured rat ependymal cells. [3H]L-Glu (0.5 μCi/mL, 19 nM) uptake by 2-week-old primary-cultured rat ependymal cells was performed at 37°C for 10 min in the absence (control) or presence of unlabeled L-Glu (1 mM), L-Asp (1 mM), or kainate (0.5 mM). Each column represents the mean ± SEM (n = 3-6). *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, significantly different from the control.
