Category structural or functional annotations
Type molecular function
Description Catalysis of the transmembrane transfer of an ion by a channel that opens when a specific extracellular inhibitory ligand has been bound by the channel complex or one of its constituent parts. Inhibitory ligands, such as GABA or glycine, open chloride-selective channels. (Gene Ontology, GO_0005237)
