It has been shown that tetrodotoxin inhibits GABA-receptor binding of muscimol with solubilized membranes of the rat brain in a competitive manner, with the inhibition constant amounting to about 3 nM. Muscimol has been also demonstrated to competitively inhibit 3H-tetrodotoxin binding with the same drug.
