In the central nervous system inhibitory neurotransmission is primarily achieved through activation of receptors for gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). Three types of GABA receptors have been identified on the basis of their pharmacology and electrophysiology. The predominant type, termed GABAA and a recently identified type, GABAC, have integral chloride channels, whereas GABAB receptors couple to separate K+ or Ca2+ channels via G-proteins. By analogy to nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, native… Expand
