  • Two forms of the multisubunit gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)A receptor were expressed in Xenopus oocytes by injecting mRNA encoding the bovine GABAA receptor subunit cDNAs for alpha 1 beta 1 gamma 2L and alpha 3 beta 1 gamma 2L. The properties of these two combinations were examined by electrophysiological recording of GABA currents using the two-electrode voltage-clamp method. The actions of several benzodiazepine site ligands were compared in terms of their affinity for and efficacy at these… CONTINUE READING
