Ubiquitination and inhibition of glycine receptor by HUWE1 in spinal cord dorsal horn.
By Product Type
By Research Area
Glycine is an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. The glycine receptor (GlyR) is a member of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor of ligand-gated ion channels. This receptor has important roles in a variety of physiological processes, especially in mediating inhibitory neurotransmission in the spinal cord and brain stem. GlyR is a pentameric receptor comprised of alpha and beta subunits. Four alpha-subunits (GLRA1, GLRA2, GLRA3, GLRA4) and one beta-subunit (GLRB) of GlyR have been identified.
