GABA (γ-amino-butyric acid), the principal inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, signals through ionotropic (GABAA/GABAC) and metabotropic (GABAB) receptor systems. Here we report the cloning of GABAB receptors. Photoaffinity labelling experiments suggest that the cloned receptors correspond to two highly conserved GABAB receptor forms present in the vertebrate nervous system. The cloned receptors negatively couple to adenylyl cyclase and show sequence similarity to the metabotropic… Expand
Characteristics of GABAB Receptor Mutant Mice
TLDR
The phenotypes of GABAB knockout mice are reviewed and how genetic experiments have contributed to the current understanding of the GABAB receptor system are discussed. Expand
Processing of GABABR1 in Heterologous Expression Systems
TLDR
The cellular localization of a GFP-tagged GABABR1 and the coupling of the cloned receptor to potassium channels are analyzed and may in retrospect explain why functional expression cloning of GABA BR1 was unsuccessful. Expand
γ-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) Receptors
γ-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the most widely distributed inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system of adult vertebrates. Virtually all neurons are sensitive to GABA through itsExpand
The GABAB Receptor
γ-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the prevalent inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. It exerts it action through ligand-gated Cl- channel (GABAA and GABAC receptors) and G protein coupled receptorsExpand
Native GABAB receptors are heteromultimers with a family of auxiliary subunits
TLDR
It is shown by functional proteomics that GABAB receptors in the brain are high-molecular-mass complexes of GABAB1, GABAB2 and members of a subfamily of the KCTD (potassium channel tetramerization domain-containing) proteins, established as auxiliary subunits of GABAb receptors that determine the pharmacology and kinetics of the receptor response.

Cloning of the GABAB Receptor Subunits B1 and B2 and their Expression in the Central Nervous System of the Adult Sea Lamprey
TLDR
Comparison of results with those reported in other vertebrates indicates that a broad and overlapping expression of the GABAB subunits in the CNS is a conserved character shared by agnathans and gnathostomes. Expand
Intracellular Retention of Recombinant GABABReceptors*
TLDR
It is reported that recombinant GABAB receptors fail to reach the cell surface when expressed in heterologous systems and are retained in the endoplasmic reticulum when introduced into COS cells and proved that they fail to activate in superior cervical ganglion neurons. Expand
The Unusual Functioning of the GABAB-Receptor Heterodimer
Functional γ-aminobutyric acid (GABAB) receptors are formed by the association of GABABR1 and GABABR2, two closely related subunits belonging to the G protein coupled receptor superfamily. AnExpand

TLDR
Recent studies that shed light on the molecular diversity, the subcellular distribution and the cell surface dynamics of GABAB receptors are reviewed. Expand
The diversity of GABAA receptors
TLDR
The pharmacology of putative receptor isoforms is summarized and the characteristics of functional channels are emphasized to further the understanding of GABA-related disorders and of the complex interaction of excitatory and inhibitory mechanisms in neuronal processing. Expand

Evidence for pharmacologically distinct GABAB receptors associated with cAMP production in rat brain
TLDR
At least two pharmacologically distinct subclasses of GABAB receptors regulate cAMP production in brain, and significant differences were noted between the potencies of some antagonists to inhibit these receptors. Expand
The metabotropic glutamate receptors: Structure and functions
TLDR
Recently, glutamate has been shown to regulate ion channels and enzymes producing second messengers via specific receptors coupled to G-proteins, and the existence of these receptors is changing views on the functioning of fast excitatory synapses. Expand

TLDR
Recent affinity labelling and site-directed mutagenesis studies on GABAA receptors that have identified amino acid residues essential for binding of agonists and allosteric modulators as well as the ion channel wall formation are discussed. Expand

TLDR
The aim of this work was the identification of pharmacologically distinct subtypes of gamma-aminobutyric acidB (GABAB) receptors in the central nervous system by choosing as models the GABAB receptors mediating inhibition of release of endogenous GABA; 2) endogenous glutamate; and 3) somatostatin-like immunoreactivity (SRIF-LI).

The GABAB receptor is negatively coupled to adenylate cyclase in various brain areas, and, in the cerebellum, data suggest a granule cell localization of this activity. Expand
