Identification of a novel region of the GABA(B2) C-terminus that regulates surface expression and neuronal targeting of the GABA(B) receptor

Identification of a novel region of the GABA(B2) C-terminus that regulates surface expression and neuronal targeting of the GABA(B) receptor

European Journal of Neuroscience 29(5): 869-878

GABA(B) is a G protein-coupled receptor composed of two subunits, GABA(B1) and GABA(B2). GABA(B1) contains an endoplasmic reticulum-retention sequence and is trafficked to the cell surface only in association with GABA(B2). To determine whether the C-terminus of GABA(B2) regulates GABA(B) trafficking, we constructed forms of GABA(B2) with various C-terminal truncations and examined their surface expression.
