Gene: Glra2 (glycine receptor, alpha 2 subunit) Mus musculus
Symbol: Glra2
Name: glycine receptor, alpha 2 subunit
RGD ID: 10656
Description: Exhibits transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Predicted to contribute to extracellularly glycine-gated chloride channel activity and glycine binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular response to ethanol; cellular response to zinc ion; and glycinergic synaptic transmission. Localizes to glycinergic synapse. Is expressed in brain and spinal cord. Orthologous to human GLRA2 (glycine receptor alpha 2); INTERACTS WITH fenamidone; folic acid; lead diacetate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: glycine receptor subunit alpha-2
