The tubulin-binding protein gephyrin copurifies with the inhibitory glycine receptor (GlyR) and is essential for its postsynaptic localization. Here we have analyzed the interaction between the GlyR and recombinant gephyrin and identified a gephyrin binding site in the cytoplasmic loop between the third and fourth transmembrane segments of the I] subunit. GlyR a subunits and GABAA receptor proteins failed to bind recombinant gephyrin. However, insertion of an 18 residue segment of the GlyR p… CONTINUE READING
