Gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit epsilon or GABA AR epsilon is encoded by the gene GABRE. GABA A receptors are members of the Cys-loop family of ligand-gated ion channels. GABA AR epsilon is a subunit of the pentameric GABA receptors where GABA is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate brain and mediates neuronal inhibition by binding to the GABA receptor and opening an integral chloride channel. GABA AR epsilon is found expressed in many tissues including adult heart, placenta and adult brain. In brain, GABA AR epsilon is expressed at the cell junction, synapse, postsynaptic cell membrane and cytoplasmic vesicle membrane.
