Bidirectional movement of gamma-aminobutyric acid in rat spinal cord slices.


The bidirectional movement of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) was studied in slices of rat spinal cord which were incubated in small volumes of medium. The appearance in the medium of endogenous GABA and the disappearance from the medium of [14C]GABA were used to calculate the rates of unidirectional uptake and unidirectional release of GABA. Under these… (More)
