  • Differential regulation of NMDA receptors by D-serine and glycine in mammalian spinal locomotor networks 

    Acton, David; Miles, Gareth B. (2017-05-01) - Journal article
    Activation of N-methyl-d-aspartate receptors (NMDARs) requires the binding of a coagonist, either d-serine or glycine, in addition to glutamate. Changes in occupancy of the coagonist binding site are proposed to modulate ...
