Gene: Gabrg2 (gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, subunit gamma 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Gabrg2
Name: gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, subunit gamma 2
Description: Exhibits GABA-A receptor activity; chloride channel activity; and 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 cellular response to histamine; gamma-aminobutyric acid signaling pathway; and inhibitory synapse assembly. Localizes to several cellular components, including GABA-A receptor complex; GABA-ergic synapse; and axon. Is expressed in central nervous system; eye; and peripheral nervous system ganglion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in childhood absence epilepsy; early infantile epileptic encephalopathy; and familial febrile seizures 8. Orthologous to human GABRG2 (gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor subunit gamma2).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
