Western blot of forebrain lysates from wildtype and a1 knockout animals, using approximately 5-7ug of tissue per slot. Blots were incubated with Anti-GABAA-R, alpha1-Subunit, C-Terminus (Cat. No. 811-GA1C) diluted 1:1000 overnight at 4°C. The antibody labeled the ~51 kDa alpha1-subunit of the GABAA-R (Lane 1). The labeling was absent from a lysate prepared from alpha1 knockout animals (Lane 2).

This antibody is predicted to react with bovine, canine, human and non-human primate based on 100% sequence homology.
This antibody is specific for the ~51 kDa alpha1-subunit of the GABAA Receptor in Western blots of rat brain.
Gamma -aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, causing a hyperpolarization of the membrane through the opening of a Cl- channel associated with the GABAA Receptor (GABAA-R) subtype. GABAA-Rs are important therapeutic targets for a range of sedative, anxiolytic, and hypnotic agents and are implicated in several diseases including epilepsy, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. The GABAA-R is a multimeric subunit complex. To date aix alphas, four betas and four gammas, plus alternative splicing variants of some of these subunits, have been identified (Olsen and Tobin, 1990; Whiting et al., 1999; Ogris et al., 2004). Injection in oocytes or mammalian cell lines of cRNA coding for alpha- and beta-subunits results in the expression of functional GABAA-R sensitive to GABA. However, coexpression of a gamma-subunit is required for benzodiazepine modulation. The various effects of the benzodiazepines in brain may also be mediated via different alpha-subunits of the receptor (McKernan et al., 2000; Mehta and Ticku, 1998; Ogris et al., 2004; Pöltl et al., 2003). Lastly, phosphorylation of beta-subunits of the receptor has been shown to modulate GABAA-R function (Brandon et al., 2003).
