The authors have investigated the effects of acute or chronic injection of typical and atypical antidepressants on the activity of the GABA-synthesizing enzyme glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD, EC 188.8.131.52) in discrete brain regions. Very significant changes in GAD activity were observed only with sulpiride and nomifensine, two atypical antidepressants that selectively influence dopaminergic transmission and, in turn, prolactin secretion.
