Summary of GABRA4

It is an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. The gene codes for subunit alpha-4. It increases the chances of autism when it interacts with subunit gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor beta-1 (GABRB1) [R].

The Function of GABRA4

GABA, the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate brain, mediates neuronal inhibition by binding to the GABA/benzodiazepine receptor and opening an integral chloride channel.
