The fifth volume in the series is the first to deal exclusively with a single type of receptor. Contributions represent the most up-to-date research in the benzodiazepine/GABA receptor-chloride channel complex, an extremely interesting protein of great neurobiological significance. Major workers in the field describe the history of GABA receptors and the benzodiazepine connection''. Lays out background material in a particularly clear fashion to allow readers from outside the field to quickly grasp the main points. Presents in detail the allosteric interactions between the various components of the benzodiazepine/GABA receptor complex from the points of view of several authors, so that readers can choose their level of involvement with these details. Includes the most recent advances on the biochemical purification, characterization, and development of monoclonal antibodies for the benzodiazepine/GABA receptor protein.
