gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a principal inhibitory neurotransmitter in vertebrate nervous system. The metabotropic receptor for GABA, GABA(B) receptor, is characterized as a G protein-coupled receptor subtype. In the present study, GABA(B) receptor-like immunoreactivity (GABA(B)R-LI) in the rat spinal cord and dorsal root ganglion (DRG), as well as GABA(B) receptor-mediated depression in the spinal dorsal horn were examined by using immunohistochemistry and whole-cell voltage-clamp… CONTINUE READING
