Reduced uptake and release of 5-hydroxytryptamine and taurine in the cerebral cortex of epileptic El mice.


Inbred mutant El mice are highly susceptible to convulsive seizures upon 'throwing' stimulation, and the inhibition of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) and taurine activities appears to be involved in the El mouse seizures. Uptake and release of [3H]5-HT and [3H]taurine into and from cerebral neurocortical slices using a superfusion system were investigated in… (More)
