GABRA3 gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor alpha3 subunit

Gene ID: 2556, updated on 2-Oct-2018

Summary

GABA is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian brain where it acts at GABA-A receptors, which are ligand-gated chloride channels. Chloride conductance of these channels can be modulated by agents such as benzodiazepines that bind to the GABA-A receptor. At least 16 distinct subunits of GABA-A receptors have been identified.
