[3H]bicuculline methochloride binding to low-affinity gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor sites. Olsen RW, Snowman AM.
1. The influx of [3H]gamma-aminobutyric acid ([3H]GABA) into isolated rat superior cervical ganglia has been measured by radioassay, supplemented by autoradiography. Ganglia were incubated in oxygenated Krebs solution at 25 degrees C, containing 10 microM-amino-oxyacetic acid. Under these conditions more than 95% of accumulated tritium was unmetabolized [3H]GABA. 2. Ganglionic radioactivity increased linearly with incubation time, to yield an intracellular fluid/extracellular fluid concentration ratio (Ci/Co) of about 200 after 6 hr in 0.

An anti-epileptic and natural relaxation agent located in the brain, GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is in fact one of the most important regulators of neurotransmission and essential functions of the body. It would seem that those who suffer from anxiety, insomnia, epilepsy, as well as other brain disorders do not produce a high enough level of GABA naturally.
