A receptor with GABAC-like pharmacology in invertebrate neurones in culture.


We have characterized in crustacean neurones in culture a receptor for gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) which conforms to the pharmacological profile of the proposed type-C GABA receptor (GABAC) found in the vertebrate retina. It is associated with a chloride-selective ion channel and is blocked by picrotoxin. It is neither inhibited by bicuculline nor… (More)
