From Biology-Online Dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

receptors, gaba-a

cell surface proteins which bind gaba and control an integral membrane chloride channel. Gaba-a receptors are the most prevalent inhibitory neurotransmitter receptors in the brain. Several isoforms have been cloned, and they belong to a superfamily which includes nicotinic receptors, glycine receptors, and 5ht-3 receptors. Most gaba-a receptors have separate modulatory sites sensitive to benzodiazepines and to barbiturates.
