GABA transport in the rat thyroid


1. The uptake of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) into rat thyroid slices was studied. 2. Uptake of 14C-GABA was concentration-dependent: one unsaturable (diffusion) and two saturable components obeying Michaelis-Menten kinetics contributed to transport. 3. The kinetic constants of saturable GABA transport systems were: K m1 =1.5 μM, V 1=4.0 nmol×(g wet weight)−1… (More)
