Uptake, release, and binding of taurine in degenerated rat retinas.


High-affinity uptake, potassium-stimulated release and receptor binding of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and taurine were studied in retinas of rats treated with monosodium glutamate (MSG) or iodoacetate-malate (IAM). Such treatments produce a selective damage of the inner retinal layers (MSG) or of the photoreceptor layer (IAM). MSG treatment decreased… (More)
