ISOLATION OF HYDROPHOBIC PROTEINS BINDING NEUROTRANSMITTER AMINO ACIDS: γ‐AMINOBUTYRIC ACID RECEPTOR OF THE SHRIMP MUSCLE
TLDR
The findings presented in the two papers of the series suggest that the excitatory and inhibitory receptor from crustacean muscle can be separated as two different proteins. Expand
The action of β-phenyl-GABA derivatives on neurones of the cat cerebral cortex
TLDR
The depressant action of β-p-CPG was not antagonised by bicuculline which suggests that the β-aryl-GABA derivatives do not exert a GABA-like action on cortical neurones. Expand
BIOLOGICAL ACTIONS In vivo AND In vitro OF TWO γ‐AMINOBUTYRIC ACID (GABA) ANALOGUES: β‐CHLORO GABA AND β‐PHENYL GABA
TLDR
The results suggest that both β‐chloro GABA and β‐phenyl GABA may pass the blood‐brain barrier. Expand
