Oxidative metabolism of 4-aminobutyrate by rat brain mitochondria: inhibition by branched-chain fatty acid.


The oxidation of 4-aminobutyric acid (GABA) by nonsynaptosomal mitochondria isolated from rat forebrain and the inhibition of this metabolism by the branched-chain fatty acids 2-methyl-2-ethyl caproate (MEC) and 2.2-dimethyl valerate (DMV) were studied. The rate of GABA oxidation, as measured by O2 uptake, was determined in medium containing either 5 or 100… (More)
