The glutamic acid decarboxylases GAD 2, also referred to as GAD 65, and GAD 1 / GAD 67 synthesize γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. The hydrophilic GAD 1 can heterodimerize with the membrane achored GAD 2 and part of GAD 1 is targeted to inhibitory nerve terminals by this mechanisms. Although both proteins exhibit significant differences in their N-terminus they share high homology in the rest of the molecule.
GADs are a widely used markers for the GABAergic system. In type 1 diabetes GAD 1 has been identified as a major autoantigen.
