Gene: Gabra2 (gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor alpha2 subunit) Rattus norvegicus
Analyze
Symbol: Gabra2
Name: gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor alpha2 subunit
Description: Predicted to contribute to GABA-A receptor activity; benzodiazepine receptor activity; and extracellular ligand-gated ion channel activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including gamma-aminobutyric acid signaling pathway; inhibitory synapse assembly; and nervous system process. Localizes to the GABA-ergic synapse; dendrite membrane; and integral component of postsynaptic specialization membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in alcohol use disorder and autistic disorder. Orthologous to human GABRA2 (gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor alpha2 subunit); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 7-chloro-5-(2-chlorophenyl)-3-hydroxy-1,3-dihydro-1,4-benzodiazepin-2-one; Alphaxolone.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: PROVISIONAL
Also known as: GABA(A) receptor subunit alpha-2; gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, alpha 2; gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA-A) receptor subunit alpha 2; gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA-A) receptor, subunit alpha 2; gamma-aminobutyric acid A receptor, alpha 2; gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor A2 subunit; gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit alpha-2; similar to Gamma-aminobutyric-acid receptor alpha-2 subunit precursor (GABA(A) receptor)
