    Reports the identification of two separate and homologous domains of the beta-subunit, each of which contributes a tyrosine and threonine essential for activation by gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). Evidence which suggests that the two identified domains of the beta-subunit contribute a major...

    A key issue for drug discovery in the post genomic era is target validation. This is particularly important when considering the CNS, where currently the majority of drug targets are neurotransmitter receptors that are known to exist as multi-gene families. The GABAergic system, which is the...

    GABAC receptors are the least studied of the three major classes of GABA receptors. The physiological roles of GABAC receptors are still being unravelled and the pharmacology of these receptors is being developed. A range of agents has been described that act on GABAC receptors with varying...
