L-glutamate release from cytosolic pool of brain synaptosomes after exposure of rats to artificial gravity loading was investigated using the inhibitor of glutamate transport as a tool. The nontransportable competitive inhibitor DL-threo-beta-benzylo-xyaspartate (DL-TBOA) was demonstrated to become more potent in Na and NMDG-supplemented media under centrifuge-induced hypergravity. We showed that DL-TBOA inhibited L-[14 C] glutamate release effectively in NMDG-supplemented media in comparison with Na+ -supplemented one.
