Project: Research

Project Description

The G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) for the inhibitory transmitter gamma- aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a unique heterodimer. Molecular analyses will be undertaken to provide insights into its signalling mechanisms and functional regulation. Investigations employing point mutant and chimeric receptors will analyse how ligand binding to the extracellular domain of the GABA-B
