Abstract
We have employed the baculovirus expression system for the production of insect cell membranes having GABA/benzo−diazepine binding sites. Three recombinant baculoviruses each harboring a different GABAA receptor cDNA were introduced into insect cells by simultaneous infection. Infected cells expressed GABA responsive Cl− channels and benzodiazepine binding sites with the same pharmacological specificity as animal cells expressing these receptor subunits
