Abstract: Neurotransmitter release is inhibited by metabotropic glutamate type 7 (mGlu7 ) receptors that reduce Ca2+ influx, yet synapses lacking this receptor also produce weaker release, suggesting that mGlu7 receptors may also prime synaptic vesicles for release. Prolonged activation of mGlu7 receptors with the agonist l-AP4 first reduces and then enhances the amplitude of EPSCs through a presynaptic effect. The inhibitory response is blocked by pertussis toxin, while the potentiating response is prevented by a phospholipase C inhibitor (U73122) and an inhibitor of diacylglycerol (DAG) binding (calphostin C), suggesting that this receptor also couples to pathways that generate DAG. Release potentiation is associated with an increase in the number of synaptic vesicles close to the plasma membrane, which was dependent on the Munc13-2 and RIM1α proteins. The Glu7 receptors activated by the glutamate released following high frequency stimulation provoke a bidirectional modulation of synaptic transmission.
