GABAA receptors are pentameric ligand-gated channels mediating inhibitory neurotransmission in the CNS. α4βxδ GABAA receptors are extrasynaptic receptors important for tonic inhibition. The functional properties and subunit arrangement of these receptors are controversial. We predefined subunit arrangement by using subunit concatenation. α4, β2, and δ(More)
The Xenopus oocyte as a heterologous expression system for proteins, was first described by Gurdon et al.1 and has been widely used since its discovery (References 2 - 3, and references therein). A characteristic that makes the oocyte attractive for foreign channel expression is the poor abundance of endogenous ion channels4. This expression system has(More)
