GLRB, also known as Glycine receptor subunit beta, has a 497 amino acid long isoform that is 56 kDa and a short 303 amino acid isoform that is 35 kDa, composed of alpha and beta subunits, responsible for mediating the inhibitory effects of glycine functioning as a neurotransmitter-gated ion channel which produces hyperpolarization via increased chloride conductance due to the binding of glycine to the receptor. Current research is being performed on several diseases and disorders including hyperekplexia, stiff-person syndrome, neurological disorder, autosomal recessive, startle disease, idiopathic generalized epilepsy, spasticity, pharyngitis, neuronitis, and lung cancer. This protein has also been shown to have interactions with GPHN and PFN1 in pathways such as neurophysiological process PGE2-induced pain processing, ligand-gated ion channel transport, transmembrane transport of small molecules, ion channel transport, and neuroactive ligand-receptor interaction.
