Abstract

The responsiveness of late passage C-6 glial cells to human retinal endothelial cell-conditioned medium (HREC-CM) was examined using glutamine synthetase (GS) activity as test parameter. Treatment with 50% or 100% HREC- CM for 4-5 days slightly affected the morphology but significantly increased GS activity. Increased glial GS activity induced by vascular endothelial cells is of relevance in preventing extracellular glutamate toxicity and regulating the brain/retinal blood barrier.
