GABA Receptor Structure Solved
Despite the importance of γ-aminobutyric acid type A (GABAA) receptors as drug targets for a wide range of health conditions, a crystal structure has never been determined—until now. Paul S. Miller and A. Radu Aricescu, structural biologists at the University of Oxford, in England, have obtained the first crystal structure of a human GABAA receptor, at 3-Å resolution (Nature 2014, DOI: 10.1038/nature13293).
