Entrez Gene summary for GABRA6 Gene:
GABA is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian brain where it acts at GABA-A receptors, which are
ligand-gated chloride channels. Chloride conductance of these channels can be modulated by agents such as
benzodiazepines that bind to the GABA-A receptor. At least 16 distinct subunits of GABA-A receptors have been
identified. (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008)

GeneCards Summary for GABRA6 Gene: 
GABRA6 (gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, alpha 6) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with GABRA6 include heroin dependence, and alcohol dependence, and among its related super-pathways are Synaptic Neurotransmission: GABAergic Inhibition and Neurotransmitter Receptor Binding And Downstream Transmission In The Postsynaptic Cell. GO annotations related to this gene include chloride channel activity and GABA-A receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is GABRG2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: GBRA6_HUMAN, Q16445
Function: GABA, the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate brain, mediates neuronal inhibition by
binding to the GABA/benzodiazepine receptor and opening an integral chloride channel

summary for GABRA6 Gene:
GABAA receptors are members of the cys-loop family of ligand-gated ion channels, responsible for mediating
the inhibitory effects of GABA alongside GABAB and GABAC receptors. They are pentameric proteins, consisting
of 5 subunits belonging to different families (alpha1-6, beta1-3, gamma1-3, delta, pi, epsilon, rho, theta).
The most abundant GABAA receptor in the mammalian brain consist of two copies each of alpha1 and beta2 with
a single gamma2 subunits. GABAA receptors contain an integral chloride channel, and have modulatory sites
for benzodiazepines, barbiturates, neurosteroids and ethanol.
