Γ-Aminobutyric acid

γ-Aminobutyric acid (gamma-aminobutyric acid) , or GABA , is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the developmentally mature mammalian central nervous system. Its principal role is reducing neuronal excitability throughout the nervous system.

GABA is sold as a dietary supplement in many countries. It has been traditionally thought that exogenous GABA (i.e. taken as a supplement) does not cross the blood–brain barrier, but data obtained from more recent research describes the notion as being unclear.

The carboxylate form of GABA is γ-aminobutyrate.

Examples of use of GABA
1. Le traitement de Prometa ne peut pas ętre administré aux personnes qui consomment de l‘héroďne, de l‘ecstasy ou du tabac car ces drogues n‘agissent pas sur les neurotransmetteurs GABA. © Le Temps, 2007 . Droits de reproduction et de diffusion réservés.
2. Des brevets ont été déposés sur ce «cocktail médicamenteux» qui agirait sur les neurotransmetteurs GABA (pour acide gamma–aminobutyrique). Ces derniers sont tr';s répandus dans les neurones du cortex qui régulent, entre autre, l‘anxiété. Certaines drogues, ŕ l‘exemple de l‘alcool, de la cocaďne ou des méthamphétamines agissent directement sur ces neurotransmetteurs.
