The regulation of postsynaptic GABAA receptor signalling in epilepsy

Abstract:

Fast postsynaptic inhibition in the brain is mediated by ionotropic GABAA receptors (GABAARs), which are activated by the release of the neurotransmitter GABA from presynaptic interneurons. The GABAAR is primarily permeable to chloride ions (Cl-) and therefore the transmembrane gradient for Cl- sets the reversal potential of the receptor (EGABA-A). When intracellular Cl- concentrations are relatively low, EGABA-A is more neg...
