    Abstract:

    Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter through activation of GABA receptors. Volatile anesthetics activate type-A (GABA(A)) receptors resulting in inhibition of synaptic transmission. Lung epithelial cells have been recently found to express GABA(A) receptors that exert anti-inflammatory properties. We hyp...More
