|Other Names||Gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit alpha-1, GABA(A) receptor subunit alpha-1, Gabra1, Gabra-1|
|Target/Specificity||Rabbit anti-GABA A Receptor alpha 1 antibody recognizes an epitope within the N-terminal region (NT) of the alpha 1 subunit of rat gamma-aminobutyric acid (A) (GABAA) receptor. GABAA receptors are GABA gated chloride channels, which are important mediators of neuronal inhibition in the mammalian central nervous system. Activation of the GABAA site results in increased intracellular chloride concentration and hyperpolarization of the cell. GABAA receptors are pentameric structures assembled from a family of distinct subunits. At least fourteen subunits have been identified, showing distinct patterns of temporal and spatial expression.GABAA receptors may be modulated by several drug types including benzodiazepines and barbiturates, and by phosphorylation by protein kinase C (PKC) and protein kinase A (PKA).|
