Gaba stimulated chloride 36 influx into reconstituted vesicles with purified gaba a benzodiazepine receptor complex



Gaba stimulated chloride 36 influx into reconstituted vesicles with purified gaba a benzodiazepine receptor complex



Biochemical & Biophysical Research Communications 146(3): 1471-1477



Solubilized and Purified .gamma.-aminobutyric acid (GABA)A receptors from membrane vesicles of the bovine cerebral cortex were reconstituted into phospholipid vesicles and 36Cl- influx into the vesicles was examined. GABA induced a significant stimulation of the 36Cl- influx into reconstituted vesicles with 1.5% CHAPS/0.15% asolectin solubilized receptor and flunitrazepam further enhanced the GABA-stimulated influx. The purification of GABAA/benzodiazepine receptor complex and Cl- channel solubilized by 1.5% CHAPS/0.15% asolectin from membrane vesicles was achieved by 1012-S affinity column chromatography. The reconstituted vesicles with the purified receptor complex and Cl- channel also exhibited GABA-stimulated 36Cl- influx. This GABA-stimulated influx of 36Cl- was also enhanced by flunitrazepam, while suppressed by bicuculline, a GABAA receptor antagonist. These results strongly suggest that GABAA receptor is directly coupled with Cl- channel, whereas benzodiazepine receptor may be functionally coupled with GABAA receptor and modulates the GABA-stimulated Cl- influx through GABAA receptor. The present results also indicate that the purified GABAA receptor complex is coupled with Cl- channel and possesses functional characteristics as GABAA receptor.
