Gene: GABRA3 (gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor subunit alpha3) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GABRA3
Name: gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor subunit alpha3
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 GABAergic synaptic transmission; chloride transmembrane transport; and gamma-aminobutyric acid signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the GABA-A receptor complex; dendrite membrane; and postsynapse. Implicated in bipolar disorder and multiple sclerosis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: GABA(A) receptor subunit alpha-3; GABA(A) receptor, alpha 3; gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, alpha 3; gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit alpha-3; gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor alpha3 subunit; gamma-animobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, alpha 3; MGC33793
