Structurally diverse GABA antagonists interact differently with open and closed conformational states of the ρ1 receptor.


Ligands acting on receptors are considered to induce a conformational change within the ligand-binding site by interacting with specific amino acids. In this study, tyrosine 102 (Y102) located in the GABA binding site of the ρ(1) subunit of the GABA(C) receptor was mutated to alanine (ρ(1Y102A)), serine (ρ(1Y102S)), and cysteine (ρ(1Y102C)) to assess the… (More)
