In preloaded, isolated segments of duodenum, jejunum, ileum and colon, ethylenediamine (EDA) caused a 3-mercaptopropionic acid (3-MPA)-sensitive release of [3H]GABA. Both EDA and GABA caused a contraction and a delayed 'after-relaxation' in the ileum, but only a delta-aminovaleric acid (DAVA)-sensitive relaxation in other intestinal segments; these actions of EDA were reduced by 3-MPA and therefore due to release of endogenous GABA. Baclofen induced a DAVA-sensitive relaxation in all tissues. Evidently, GABA modulates cholinergic excitation of the smooth muscle at all levels of the intestine.
