Abstract

Solitary horizontal cells dissociated from goldfish retinas depolarized when exposed to micromolar doses of either l-glutamate or kainic acid. The responses to both of these agonists were antagonized by d-aspartate, and unaffected by l-aspartate, l-glutamic acid diethyl ester and folic acid. The results of the present study thus suggest that l-glutamate and kainic acid may produce depolarizations of horizontal cells by interacting with pharmacologically similar membrane receptors.
