Platelet uptake of GABA and glutamate in patients with bipolar disorder

Bipolar Disorders, 05/10/2012

The authors found a relationship between Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA)– and glutamate (Glu)–uptake levels and the polarity of episodes in patients with bipolar disorder (BD). The data suggest that the functionality of both GABA and Glu transporters could represent a useful neurobiological marker to characterize the real polarity of an index episode of illness in patients with BD.
