 Abstract: gamma-Aminobutyric acid receptor (GABAAR) channels in different neurons display heterogeneous functional properties. Molecular cloning revealed a large number of GABAAR subunits that assemble into GABAAR subtypes with different functional properties, suggesting that the subunit combination determines the functional properties of the receptor. In this study, the subunit composition of GABAARs is related to a functional distinction between Zn2(+)-sensitive and Zn2(+)-insensitive receptor subtypes. GABAARs reconstituted in transiently transfected fibroblasts from combinations of cDNAs encoding alpha and beta subunits are potently blocked by Zn2+. The presence of a gamma subunit in any combination with the other subunits leads to the formation of GABAARs that are almost insensitive to Zn2+. These data provide a structural correlate to the functional heterogeneity of the action of Zn2+ on GABAARs in native membranes and show that Zn2+ insensitivity of GABA-activated currents indicates the presence of a gamma-subunit in the assembled GABAAR channel.
