Abstract: To investigate the influence of a partial sensory deprivation on the extracellular concentration of amino acid neurotransmitters in cat visual cortex, a capillary electrophoresis method was developed for the quantification of gamma -aminobutyric acid (GABA), glutamate (Glu) and aspartate (Asp) in in vivo microdialysis samples of cat brain. Microdialysis samples from different regions of area 17 were obtained every 15-min using CMA 12 2-mm probes perfused with synthetic cerebrospinal fluid and derivatized using fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC). Laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) detection was employed. Good selectivity was obtained with a berate buffer (20 mM, pH 10.25). The whole procedure, including the washing step takes only 15 min. The conditions fur derivatization and separation were optimized. The parameters for validation such as linearity, precision and detection limit are also reported. The results are consistent with those of HPLC but, as the sample volumes needed are only 1-5 nl, a much better time resolution can be obtained. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
