Glutamate receptor agonists release [3H]GABA preferentially from horizontal cells.


A total of 5-6 different cell types in vertebrate retinas accumulate [3H]gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). In frog retina, specific populations of cells in the horizontal, amacrine and ganglion cell layers are labeled autoradiographically after a 15-min in vitro incubation with [3H]GABA. Cells which may be bipolar or interplexiform cells are also labeled… (More)
