High impact information on Olfr65

  • The GABA concentration producing a half-maximal current was similar for beta 2 and beta 3 subtype-containing receptors (6 microM) but higher for beta 1 subtype-containing receptors (26 microM). alpha 5 beta 3 gamma 2L receptors were zinc and diazepam sensitive but zolpidem insensitive [1].
  • The distinct affinities of recombinant receptors for CI 218,872 suggested that the alpha 5 beta 3 gamma 2 receptor is the dominant zolpidem-insensitive GABAA receptor in the brain [2].
  • The BZ site of gamma 3-containing receptors was partially independent of the accompanying alpha and beta variants. alpha 1/5 beta 3 gamma 3 receptors were zolpidem insensitive but distinguished from alpha 5 beta 3 gamma 2 receptors by high affinity for the partial BZ receptor agonist CI 218,872 [2].
  • Hence, alpha 5 beta 3 gamma 3 recpetors are not a major fraction of the native zolpidem-insensitive receptors, even though their genes are colocalized on mouse chromosome 7 and on human chromosome 15 [2].
