Related ArticlesGABAB receptors in neocortical and hippocampal pyramidal neurons are coupled to different potassium channels. Eur J Neurosci. 2017 Dec;46(12):2859-2866 Authors: Breton JD, Stuart GJ Abstract Classically, GABAB receptors are thought to regulate neuronal excitability via G-protein-coupled inwardly rectifying potassium (GIRK) channels. Recent data, however, indicate that GABAB receptors can also activate two-pore domain potassium channels. Here, we investigate which potassium [...]
