Transition from GABAergic to Glycinergic Synaptic Transmission in Newly Formed Spinal Networks

Gao, Bao-Xi; Stricker, Christian; Ziskind-Conhaim, Lea


The role of glycinergic and GABAergic systems in mediating spontaneous synaptic transmission in newly formed neural networks was examined in motoneurons in the developing rat spinal cord. Properties of action potentialindependent miniature inhibitory postsynaptic currents (mIPSCs) mediated by glycine and GABAA receptors (GlyR and GABAAR) were studied in spinal cord slices of 17- to 18-day-old embryos (E17-18) and 1- to 3-day-old postnatal rats (P1-3). mIPSC frequency and amplitude significantly...[Show more]
