Binding of [3H] muscimol to the retina of rabbit and turtle.


1. We studied the binding of [3H]muscimol to membrane preparations of the retina of rabbit (Lepus cuniculus) and turtle (Pseudemys scripta elegans). 2. In both species, [3H]muscimol binding was maximal at 0 degrees C and decreased with increasing temperature, it was saturable, protein concentration dependent and specific. Muscimol, GABA and bicuculline were… (More)
