Inhibitory glycine receptors (GlyRs) are known to mediate postsynaptic inhibition in spinal cord, brain stem and some higher brain regions. Several developmentally and regionally regulated GlyR isoforms exist, which result from a differential expression of the GlyR alpha (alpha1-alpha4) and beta subunit genes. Currently, very little is known about GlyRs containing the alpha4 subunit, whose existence was predicted from a partial genomic sequence. Here, we describe the isolation of complementary… CONTINUE READING
