GABAA receptor-γ3, also known as GABRG3, is a protein which in humans is encoded by the GABRG3 gene.


GABRG3 is a subunit of the GABAA receptor for the neurotransmitter gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA).[1]

Association with alcoholism

Genetic markers near the GABRG3 gene are statistically linked to alcoholism.[2]
