Possible functional coupling between gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and benzodiazepine receptors was examined using a purified GABA/benzodiazepine receptor complex. The purified receptor complex was obtained by 1012-S-acetamide adipic hydrazide Sepharose 4B affinity column chromatography, following the solubilization of synaptic membrane from the bovine cerebral cortex with Nonidet P-40. The binding of [3H]GABA to the purified GABA receptor was displaced significantly by muscimol and… CONTINUE READING
