Protein Information
Synonyms GPRC3A
Function Component of a heterodimeric G-protein coupled receptor for GABA, formed by GABBR1 and GABBR2 (PubMed:9872316, PubMed:9872744, PubMed:15617512, PubMed:18165688, PubMed:22660477, PubMed:24305054). Within the heterodimeric GABA receptor, only GABBR1 seems to bind agonists, while GABBR2 mediates coupling to G proteins (PubMed:18165688). Ligand binding causes a conformation change that triggers signaling via guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins) and modulates the activity of down-stream effectors, such as adenylate cyclase (PubMed:10906333, PubMed:10773016, PubMed:10075644, PubMed:9872744, PubMed:24305054). Signaling inhibits adenylate cyclase, stimulates phospholipase A2, activates potassium channels, inactivates voltage-dependent calcium-channels and modulates inositol phospholipid hydrolysis (PubMed:10075644). Calcium is required for high affinity binding to GABA (By similarity). Plays a critical role in the fine-tuning of inhibitory synaptic transmission (PubMed:9844003). Pre-synaptic GABA receptor inhibits neurotransmitter release by down-regulating high-voltage activated calcium channels, whereas postsynaptic GABA receptor decreases neuronal excitability by activating a prominent inwardly rectifying potassium (Kir) conductance that underlies the late inhibitory postsynaptic potentials (PubMed:9844003, PubMed:9872316, PubMed:10075644, PubMed:9872744, PubMed:22660477). Not only implicated in synaptic inhibition but also in hippocampal long-term potentiation, slow wave sleep, muscle relaxation and antinociception (Probable). Activated by (-)-baclofen, cgp27492 and blocked by phaclofen (PubMed:9844003, PubMed:9872316, PubMed:24305054).
Cellular Location Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell junction, synapse, postsynaptic cell membrane {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9Z0U4}; Multi- pass membrane protein. Cell projection, dendrite {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9Z0U4}. Note=Colocalizes with ATF4 in hippocampal neuron dendritic membranes (By similarity) Coexpression of GABBR1 and GABBR2 is required for GABBR1 maturation and transport to the plasma membrane (PubMed:15617512) {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9Z0U4, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15617512}
Tissue Location Highly expressed in brain (PubMed:9844003, PubMed:9753614, PubMed:9872744). Weakly expressed in heart, small intestine and uterus. Isoform 1A: Mainly expressed in granular cell and molecular layer (PubMed:9844003). Isoform 1B: Mainly expressed in Purkinje cells (PubMed:9844003). Isoform 1E: Predominantly expressed in peripheral tissues as kidney, lung, trachea, colon, small intestine, stomach, bone marrow, thymus and mammary gland (PubMed:10906333).

Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the main inhibitoryneurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system. GABAexerts its effects through ionotropic [GABA(A/C)] receptors, toproduce fast synaptic inhibition, and metabotropic [GABA(B)]receptors, to produce slow, prolonged inhibitory signals. TheGABA(B) receptor consists of a heterodimer of two related7-transmembrane receptors, GABA(B) receptor 1 and GABA(B) receptor2. The GABA(B) receptor 1 gene is mapped to chromosome 6p21.3within the HLA class I region close to the HLA-F gene.Susceptibility loci for multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, andschizophrenia have also been mapped in this region. Alternativesplicing of this gene generates multiple transcript variants.
