Zinc ions: an endogenous neuromodulator

Abstract

Zinc ions are widely distributed in the central nervous system. Zinc ions are released from neurons in a calcium-dependent manner. In recent years abundant evidence indicates that zinc ions modulate not only the release of transmitters, but also the voltage- and ligand (excitatory and inhibitory amino acids)-gated channels, suggesting that these ions may serve as an important endogenous neuromodulator.
