ABOUT THIS ANTIBODY
anti-GABA labels GABA-ergic neurons. Gamma-Aminobutyric acid is an inhibitory neurotransmitter. GABA-ergic synaptic transmission reduces neuronal excitability in the post-synatic neuron by hyperpolarising the cell through the opening of GABA receptor mediated ion channels which allows chloride ions to flow into the or potassium ions to flow out of the postsynaptic neuron. .

NB: this antibody requires fixation to be very short (Max of 15 mins for dissected embryos).
