L-Glutamic acid acts as an excitatory transmitter and an agonist at all subtypes of glutamate receptors (metabotropic, kainate, NMDA, and AMPA). L-Glutamic acid shows a direct activating effect on the release of DA from dopaminergic terminals.

How to use

In Vitro:

L-Glutamic acid could act on [3H]DA release through presynaptic glutamatergic receptors. L-glutamic acid (50 μM) still stimulated the release of [3H] DA in the presence of tetrodotoxin (0.5 μM).
