GABAA receptors are fast-acting, ligand-gated anion channels that are the major mediators of inhibitory neurotransmission in the mammalian central nervous system. GABAA receptor activity is regulated by phosphorylation as well as being modulated allosterically by a variety of drugs including the anxiolytic benzodiazepines and barbiturates.
