Abstract

Externally applied gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) quickly and reversibly reduces by 60% voltage activated Ca2+ currents in chick dorsal root ganglion cells. This action is antagonized by depolarization, with characteristic time and voltage requirements. Intracellular perfusion with guanosine 5'-O-(3-thiotriphosphate) (GTP gamma S) or guanosine 5'-O-(2-thiodiphosphate) (GDP beta S) mimicks and blocks the GABA effect, respectively. A 3-state model describing the reactions involved is proposed.
