In both human and rat tissues, complex patterns of transcripts are derived from the genes that encode the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)(A) receptor epsilon subunit. An epsilon subunit transcript (approximately 3.6 kb) is expressed at relatively high levels in regions of the human brain and heart, but is not detected in most other major tissues. The encoded human epsilon subunit (epsilon (h)) confers distinctive properties to receptors into which it assembles. A distinct transcript of the gene… CONTINUE READING
