Abstract

Using appropriate internal standards, quantitative reverse transcripase- polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), and cerebellar granule cell (CG) in primary cultures we have quantified the expression of mRNAs encoding for GluR(1-4) DL-α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazole-4-propionic acid (AMPA) receptor subunits during neuronal maturation in vitro. GluR1 is the mRNA that increases during CG maturation; the expression changes of the other GluR mRNAs are minimal and the translation products of these mRNAs change with a similar pattern. During CG maturation, there is an 8- to 10-fold increase in the GluR1 FLOP mRNA and a twofold increase in the expression of FLOP mRNA for GluR4 and GluR(4C). The GluR1 FLIP mRNA increases, but by a smaller extent. We found that the GluR2 mRNA is completely edited at its Q/R site during CG maturation. The increase on the expression of GluR1 FLIP and FLOP and of GluR4 FLOP mRNA variants during development is associated with a 10- fold increase in AMPA-mediated Na+ currents and in the increased amplification of this current by 7-chloro-3-methyl-3,4 dihydro-2H-1,2,4 benzothiadiazine S-S-dioxide (IDRA21) or by 6-chloro-3,4 dihydro-3-(2- norbornen-5-yl)-7-sulfamoyl-1,2,4-benzothiadiazine 1,1 dioxide (cyclothiazide [CT]).
