Gene: Gabra1 (gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, subunit alpha 1) Mus musculus
Symbol: Gabra1
Name: gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, subunit alpha 1
Description: Exhibits transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Contributes to GABA-gated chloride ion channel activity. Involved in inhibitory synapse assembly and regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Localizes to GABA-ergic synapse and plasma membrane. Is expressed in alimentary system; central nervous system; and eye. Used to study idiopathic generalized epilepsy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 19 and idiopathic generalized epilepsy 13. Orthologous to human GABRA1 (gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor subunit alpha1); INTERACTS WITH bisphenol A; butan-1-ol; clozapine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: GABA(A) receptor subunit alpha-1; GABAA alpha 1; GABAA-alpha1; GABAAR alpha1; GABAAR-alpha1; Gabra-1; gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA-A) receptor, subunit alpha 1; gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit alpha-1
