Gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit theta is a protein that in humans is encoded by theGABRQ gene.[3][4] The protein encoded by this gene is a subunit of the GABAA receptor.

The θ subunit has highest sequence similarity with the β1 subunit.[4] This subunit coassembles with:

  • α2, β1, and γ1[4]
  • α3 and β1[5]
  • α3, β1, and ε.[5]
