The investigations reported here demonstrate high affinity transport systems localized in glial cells which appear to be specific for amino acid neurotransmitter candidates. Data on uptake of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), glutamate, glycine, and taurine, show transport systems with KT'S in the range of 10(-5) M.
