Cloning of the human brain GABA transporter.


A cDNA clone encoding a transporter for the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid in human brain was cloned and sequenced. The cDNA contains an open reading frame encoding a hydrophobic protein of 599 amino acids with a calculated molecular weight of 67022 Da. Hydropathy analysis revealed twelve potential transmembrane segments. The human protein is… (More)
