Retina ganglion GLU cellDistal equivalent dendriteGlutamateON bipolar (midget bipolar)ON beta Ganglion cells. ON beta Ganglion cells respond to ionophoresed GLU and GLU agonists, and are blocked by GLU antagonists (SOBiv p238). Ganglion cells express GLUR and NMDAR (Cohen ED et al, 1994 [cat]2 ). reviewed by SOBiv p238). Multiple subunits of GLUR and NMDAR are present (Hamassaki-Britto DE et al, 1993 [mammal]3 ). (Peng YW et al, 1995 [mammal]4 ). (Vardi N and Morigiwa K, 1997 [rat]1 ). SOBiv p238). Some bipolar cells contain glycine (Cohen E and Sterling P, 1986 [cat]5 ). (Pourcho RG and Goebel DJ, 1987 [cat]6 ). but the postsynaptic target is most likely amacrine cells (SOBiv p238).
