Synaptic zinc inhibition of NMDA receptors depends on the association of GluN2A with the zinc transporter ZnT1 – Science Advances

Posted: at 12:45 pm

INTRODUCTION Zinc is a neuromodulator that regulates glutamatergic, -aminobutyric acidmediated (GABAergic), and glycinergic synaptic transmission (17); short- and long-term synaptic plasticity (2, 812); auditory processing; and acuity for sensory stimulus discrimination (1315). The zinc transporter ZnT3 (Slc30a3) packages zinc into presynaptic vesicles of large populations of excitatory neurons in many brain regions, including the cerebral cortex, hippocampus, amygdala, and dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCN) (16). During synaptic activity, vesicular zinc is released from ZnT3-containing terminals (1, 17) and diffuses across the synaptic cleft (4) to modulate a number of postsynaptic receptors (3, 6, 18, 19), including the highly zinc-sensitive N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) (2, 4, 20). Continue reading
