    Mustapha Irnaten
    Department of Pharmacology, George Washington University, Washington, DC 20037, USA
    Anesthesiology 97:717-24. 2002
    ..The authors tested whether pentobarbital augments the inhibitory GABAergic neurotransmission to cardiac parasympathetic neurons, and whether expression of the GABA(A) epsilon subunit prevents this facilitation...

    Amynah Pradhan
    Department of Neuropsychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, Stefan and Shirley Hatos Center for Neuropharmacology, Semel Institute, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
    Mol Pain 9:8. 2013
    ..In addition, as beta-arrestin 2 can regulate delta opioid receptor trafficking and signaling, we have further examined whether deleting this scaffolding and signal transduction molecule alters delta opioid receptor function...
