Glycine is one of the major inhibitory neurotransmitters, and upon binding to its receptor it activates chloride conductances. Receptors are accumulated immediately opposite release sites, at the postsynaptic differentiations, where they form functional microdomains. This review describes recent advances in our understanding of the structure-function relationships of the glycine receptor, a member of the ligand-gated ion channel superfamily. Following purification of the receptor complex and… CONTINUE READING
