GABAB receptors: drugs meet clones

Curr Opin Neurobiol. 1998 Jun;8(3):345-50. doi: 10.1016/s0959-4388(98)80059-7.


Recently, the long-awaited cloning of the GABAB receptors, the last of the major known neurotransmitter receptors to be identified, has been reported. In addition to an emerging molecular understanding, there have been advances in discerning the specific coupling partners of GABAB receptors in the brain.
