FunctionGABA, the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate brain, mediates neuronal inhibition by binding to the GABA/benzodiazepine receptor and opening an integral chloride channel.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in GABRA1 are the cause of childhood absence epilepsy type 4 (ECA4) [MIM:611136]. A subtype of idiopathic generalized epilepsy characterized by onset at age 6-7 years, frequent absence seizures (several per day) and bilateral, synchronous, symmetric 3-Hz spike waves on EEG. During adolescence, tonic-clonic and myoclonic seizures may develop. Absence seizures may either remit or persist into adulthood.
Defects in GABRA1 are the cause of juvenile myoclonic epilepsy type 5 (EJM5) [MIM:611136]. A subtype of idiopathic generalized epilepsy. Patients have afebrile seizures only, with onset in adolescence (rather than in childhood) and myoclonic jerks which usually occur after awakening and are triggered by sleep deprivation and fatigue.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ligand-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.9) family. Gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor (TC 1.A.9.5) subfamily. GABRA1 sub-subfamily.

Anti-GABA A Receptor alpha 1 antibody (ab33299) at 1/10000 dilution + rat brain microsomal preparation tissue lysate at 10 µg
Predicted band size: 52 kDa
Observed band size: 51 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
Proteins were visualized using an IgG (HRP) donkey anti-rabbit and a chemiluminescence detection system.
Immunohistochemistry analysis of formalin fixed paraffin embedded rat hippocampus tissue prepared using heat-induced epitope retrieval (HIER) labeling GABA A Receptor alpha 1 using ab33299 at 1/500 dilution. Secondary antibody was an anti-rabbit antibody and HRP-DAB.
Immunoprecipitation analysis: 1 mg of RIPA lysate of rat brain microsomes
was immunoprecipitated with 5 uL of ab33299. Arrow indicates GABAA
Receptor a1 (~50kD).
ab33299 staining GABA A Receptor alpha 1 in human retinal tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections).
Tissue was fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde, blocked with 10% donkey serum for 20 minutes at 24°C, then incubated with ab33299 at a 1/100 dilution for 16 hours at 4°C. The secondary antibody used was an Alexa-Fluor 488 (green) conjugated donkey anti-rabbit polyclonal, used at a 1/1000 dilution. Counterstained with Hoechst 33258 (blue).
