Postmortem changes in the activity of GDH, GAD, GABA-T, and GS in the adult forebrain and cerebellum and in the forebrain of newborns have been investigated. The activities of GDH, GAD, and GS were stable till 12 hr after death in both adult and young brain regions studied. The activity of GABA-T was stable till 30 min postmortem, but declined progressively thereafter in both regions in adult, as well as in young forebrain.
