gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA, half-maximal inhibitory concentration, IC50 = 9.9 microM) and (-)-baclofen (IC50 = 4.5 microM) but not 10(-4) M muscimol, exerted a presynaptic inhibitory effect on cholinergic transmission in field-stimulated guinea-pig taenia coli preparations, in vitro. The antagonism by 10(-5) M (1S, 9R)-bicuculline methiodide was not specific for GABA agonists. The results suggest that the GABA receptors involved were of type B.
