Inhibitory neurotransmission by γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is regulated by the number and subcellular localization of GABAA receptors in the membrane of the target neuron. A new study suggests that the ubiquitin-like protein Plic-1 stabilizes intracellular GABAA receptors and promotes their accumulation in the plasma membrane.
