Role of Sodium and Potassium Ions in Regulation of Glucose Metabolism in Cultured Astroglia
Description:
In a short annotated bibliography of the articles he considered his most significant, Sokoloff noted, "Reports studies with neuronal and astroglial cell cultures demonstrating that glucose utilization in neurons but not in astroglia is stimulated by increased extracellular K+ concentration (e.g., expected to occur in vivo as a result of increased spike frequency in axonal terminals) that in turn activates Na+, K+ -ATPase activity. Astroglial glucose utilization is stimulated by glutamate (presumably released in synapses by functional activation of excitatory pathways); the mechanism of the metabolic stimulation is coupled uptake of Na+ with the glutamate by the astroglia and consequent activation of Na+, K+ -ATPase activity.)"
