The group I mGluR agonist (S)-3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine (3,5-DHPG) and the mGluR5 agonist 2-chloro-5-hydroxyphenylglycine both induced a membrane depolarisation of striatal cholinergic interneurons. The response to 3,5-DHPG was blocked only by the coadministration of mGluR1 and mGluR5 antagonists, suggesting that both mGluRs are involved in this excitatory effect in striatal cholinergic interneurons.
