Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a principal inhibitory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate nervous system. It is found mainly in local circuit neurons, but it has also been described in sensory organs and dorsal root ganglia (DRG). The present study describes the presence of GABA in primary afferent neurons of feline sensory ganglia: trigeminal ganglia (TrG), nodose ganglia (NG), and DRG. Quantitative analysis revealed that approximately 20% of the cells in the TrG, NG and DRG are GABAergic… CONTINUE READING
