Gene: Gabra6 (gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, subunit alpha 6) Mus musculus
Symbol: Gabra6
Name: gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, subunit alpha 6
Description: Exhibits transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Predicted to contribute to GABA-A receptor activity and benzodiazepine receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including GABAergic synaptic transmission; chloride transmembrane transport; and gamma-aminobutyric acid signaling pathway. Localizes to cerebellar Golgi cell to granule cell synapse. Is expressed in central nervous system and retina. Orthologous to human GABRA6 (gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor subunit alpha6); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3alpha-hydroxy-5beta-pregnan-20-one; diazepam.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: alpha6; GABA(A) receptor subunit alpha-6; GABA-ARalpha6; GABAA receptor alpha 6 subunit; Gabra-6; gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA-A) receptor, subunit alpha 6; gamma-aminobutyric acid A recptor, subunit alpha 6; gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit alpha-6; subunit alpha 6 gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA-A) receptor
