    Notes: Abstract The ontogeny of the uptake of glutamate, GABA and glycine into synaptic vesicles isolated from rat brain has been investigated. The vesicular uptake of the three amino acids increased with developmental age in parallel with synaptogenesis, indicating a functional role of uptake of the amino acids by synaptic vesicles in the nerve terminals. Uptake of the amino acids by plasma membrane particles (synaptosomes) in brain homogenate showed a somewhat different developmental profile. The uptake of glutamate increased markedly with developmental time, while the uptake of GABA showed only a slight increase. Uptake of glycine by plasma membrane particles was very low and therefore not registered. The observed developmental increase in uptake of glycine by synaptic vesicles isolated from brain, supports previous reports indicating that glycine can be taken up by vesicles from non-glycine terminals.
