Described in this unit are ligand binding assays for GABAA, GABAB, and GABAC receptor recognition sites in brain tissue. These assays may also be used to determine the affinity of an unlabeled compound for the GABA binding sites. Not included in this unit are ligand binding assays for other components of the GABAA, receptor complex, such as the benzodiazepine or ion channel binding sites.
