Associations of Gabbr1 with chemical compounds

  • Expression differences were detected for several genes, including Casein Kinase 1 Epsilon (Csnkle), glutamate receptor, ionotropic, AMPA1 (GluR1), GABA B1 receptor (Gabbr1), and dopamine- and cAMP-regulated phosphoprotein of 32 kDa (Darpp-32) [25].
  • The response is mediated through the GABAB receptor, and the rank order of potency for agonists is (-)-baclofen (EC50 = 4 microM) greater than GABA (EC50 = 17 microM) greater than muscimol greater than (+)-baclofen [26].
  • The GABAB receptor agonist baclofen inhibited the efflux induced by depolarization but not by A23187, whereas tricyclic antidepressant desipramine inhibited the efflux induced by both depolarization and A23187 [27].
  • gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid increases intracellular Ca2+ concentration and nuclear cyclic AMP-responsive element- and activator protein 1 DNA-binding activities through GABAB receptor in cultured cerebellar granule cells [28].
  • Inhibition of GABAB receptor function enhances ethanol-mediated potentiation of distal GABAA IPSCs in ILS but not ISS mice, and this blockade of GABAB receptor function has no effect on the action of ethanol on NMDA EPSCs in either mouse strain [29].

Physical interactions of Gabbr1

  • Thus, the GABAB receptor is negatively coupled to adenylate cyclase in various brain areas, and, in the cerebellum, data suggest a granule cell localization of this activity [26].
  • Using the selective GABAA receptor agonist isoguvacine it could be demonstrated that the GABAB receptors are functionally coupled to GABAA receptors in the neurons leading to a disinhibitory action of GABAB receptor agonists [30].
