Effects of various concentrations of glutamate on cell viability. Primary cortical cells isolated from 18–20 day old fetal rat brains were cultured for 7 days and then treated with various concentrations of glutamate or in absence of glutamate (control) for 18 h. Cell viability was determined using the MTS cell proliferation assay as described under "Methods". Cell viability is expressed as the mean (± SEM) from three experiments. * P < 0.05 (1-100 mM)compared with untreated control cells.
