Gamma-aminobutyric acid stimulates the release of endogenous ascorbic acid from rat striatal tissue.

Abstract

Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) was found to induce the release of ascorbic acid from rat striatal homogenates and minces. This release was studied with the use of a rapid superfusion system with an on-line amperometric detector that monitors for the presence of easily oxidized substances (i.e., ascorbate, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylethylamine). The release was… (More)
