High-affinity, Na+-independent binding of [3H]muscimol (KB approximately equal to 1.6 x 10(-8) M; Bmax approximately equal to 0.14 nmol/g pellet) occurred to a frozen-thawed particulate fraction of 74-h-old neurone-enriched cultures prepared from the cerebra of 12-13-day-old rat embryos. This finding provides evidence that GABA-receptors exist on cultured neurones which contain only a few synaptic connections.
