G-protein-gated inward rectifier potassium channels mediate the synaptic actions of numerous neurotransmitters in the mammalian brain, and were recently shown to be candidates for genetic mutations leading to neuronal cell death. This report describes the localization of G-protein-gated inward rectifier potassium channel-2 and G-protein-gated inward rectifier potassium channel-4 proteins in the rat brain, as assessed by immunocytochemistry. G-protein-gated inward rectifier potassium channel-2… CONTINUE READING
