A2129 γ-Aminobutyric acid ≥99% GABA (γ-Aminobutyric acid) is an amino acid that functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and also functions as a neuromodulator in some peripheral tissues. It binds to GABAA receptor and inhibits the activity of signal-receiving neurons. The GABAA receptors are found to form a channel in the cell membranes of neurons. Upon binding of GABA, the receptor is activated to allow the passage of negatively charged molecules, such as chloride ions, into the cell. This results in lowering of excitability of the cell.
GABAergic neurons are involved in myorelaxation, anxiolytic treatment, sedation, and anaesthetics. GABA can also influence heart rate and blood pressure.
Major inhibitory neurotransmitter in brain; GABAA and GABAB receptor agonist; increases Cl conductance.
