Glycine receptor subunit beta (Glycine receptor 58 kDa subunit)

Glycine receptors are ligand-gated chloride channels. GLRB does not form ligand-gated ion channels by itself, but is part of heteromeric ligand-gated chloride channels. Channel opening is triggered by extracellular glycine (PubMed:8717357, PubMed:15302677, PubMed:16144831, PubMed:22715885, PubMed:25445488, PubMed:11929858, PubMed:23238346). Heteropentameric channels composed of GLRB and GLRA1 are activated by lower glycine levels than homopentameric GLRA1 (PubMed:8717357). Plays an important role in the down-regulation of neuronal excitability (PubMed:11929858, PubMed:23238346). Contributes to the generation of inhibitory postsynaptic currents (PubMed:25445488). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:11929858, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15302677, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16144831, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22715885, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23238346, ECO:0000269|PubMed:25445488, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8717357}.
