Name
GABA receptor activity
Ontology

Synonyms
4-aminobutanoate receptor activity, 4-aminobutyrate receptor activity, GABA binding, gamma-aminobutyrate binding, gamma-aminobutyric acid binding, gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor activity
Definition
Combining with gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), and transmitting the signal from one side of the membrane to the other to initiate a change in cell activity. (GABA, 4-aminobutyrate) is an amino acid which acts as a neurotransmitter in some organisms. Source: GOC:signaling, GOC:jl, PMID:10637650
