1.1. The accumulation of [14C]GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) was studied in a series of crustacean nerve-muscle preparations, with various patterns of inhibitory innervation.2.2. The preparations with little or no inhibitory innervation took up much less GABA than those with a plentiful inhibitory supply.3.3. It is concluded that the major part of the GABA uptake is dependent upon the inhibitory nerve endings or neuromuscular synapses.
