About This Section

Entrez Gene summary for GLRA1 Gene:
The protein encoded by this gene is a subunit of a pentameric inhibitory glycine receptor. The receptor mediates
postsynaptic inhibition in the central nervous system. Defects in this gene are a cause of startle disease
(STHE), also known as hereditary hyperekplexia or congenital stiff-person syndrome. Two transcript variants
encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.(provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009)

GeneCards Summary for GLRA1 Gene: 
GLRA1 (glycine receptor, alpha 1) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with GLRA1 include hyperekplexia, and glra1-related hyperekplexia, and among its related super-pathways are SLC-mediated transmembrane transport and Stimuli-sensing channels. GO annotations related to this gene include transmitter-gated ion channel activity and glycine binding. An important paralog of this gene is GLRA2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: GLRA1_HUMAN, P23415
Function: The glycine receptor is a neurotransmitter-gated ion channel. Binding of glycine to its receptor
increases the chloride conductance and thus produces hyperpolarization (inhibition of neuronal firing)

summary for GLRA1 Gene:
Glycine receptors (GlyR) are members of the cys-loop family of ligand-gated ion channels, responsible for
mediating the inhibitory effects of glycine. They are widely distributed throughout the CNS, particularly
within the hippocampus, spinal cord and brain stem. Glycine receptors exist as pentameric proteins,
homo-oligomers of the alpha isoforms (alpha1, alpha2, alpha3 or alpha4) or hetero-oligomers which also
contain the beta-subtype variant (beta1) which is essential for targeting the receptor to the synapse.
Glycine receptors contain an integral chloride channel, and have modulatory sites for anesthetics,
neurosteroids, cannabinoids and ethanol. Disruption in glycine receptor expression or ion channel function
can result in hyperekplexia, a rare neurological disorder.
