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. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; heart; integumental system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autistic disorder and infantile or early childhood epileptic encephalopathy 2. Orthologous to human GABRB2 (gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor subunit beta2); INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; benzamide; dextran sulfate.
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
