There is a strong possibility, therefore, that the enzyme is induced directly by neurohumoural agents, where presynaptic release of a neurotransmitter is followed by enzyme synthesis in postsynaptic cells.

GABA also is not readily taken up from the bloodstream to the brain so in these experiments an inhibitor of GABA catabolism was used to effect its accumulation. A subcutaneous injection of amino-oxyacetic acid into young mice caused a 5-fold increase in brain GABA content within 6hr. which was followed during the course of one day by a decrease in glutamate decarboxylase activity ([12] ; Fig. 5). The use of an inhibitor to produce accumulation of an endogenous chemical presents problems not faced if the accumulation could be achieved more directly by elevating its concentration in the bloodstream, so various potential interpretations alternative to that of suppression of enzyme synthesis required assessment.
