Retinal Colocalization and In Vitro Interaction of the Glutamate Receptor EAAT3 and the Serum- and Glucocorticoid-Inducible Kinase SGK1
PURPOSE. The serum- and glucocorticoid-inducible kinase SGK1 regulates several epithelial channels and transporters, the related protein kinase B (PKB) regulates glucose transport. SGK1 is expressed in the brain and could thus regulate glial and/or neuronal transport processes. The present study explores whether SGK1 is expressed in the retina and whether it regulates EAAT3, a Na+-coupled glutamate transporter. EAAT3 is expressed in retinal ganglion cells and accomplishes the clearance of...[Show more]
