Gene: Gabrb2 (gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, subunit beta 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Gabrb2
Name: gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, subunit beta 2
Description: Exhibits transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Contributes to GABA-gated chloride ion channel activity. Involved in several processes, including inner ear development; nervous system development; and sensory perception of sound. Localizes to GABA-ergic synapse and integral component of postsynaptic specialization membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autistic disorder and infantile or early childhood epileptic encephalopathy 2. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; heart; integumental system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human GABRB2 (gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor subunit beta2); INTERACTS WITH benzamide; dextran sulfate; dibutyl phthalate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AI834970; C030002O17Rik; C030021G16Rik; GABA(A) receptor subunit beta-2; Gabrab2; Gabrb-2; gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA-A) receptor, subunit beta 2; gamma-aminobutyric acid A receptor, subunit beta 2; gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor beta-2 subunit; gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit beta-2
