Gene: Glra2 (glycine receptor, alpha 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Glra2
Name: glycine receptor, alpha 2
Description: Predicted to contribute to extracellularly glycine-gated chloride channel activity and glycine binding activity. Involved in spinal cord development and synapse assembly. Predicted to localize to the glycinergic synapse; integral component of plasma membrane; and neuron projection. Orthologous to human GLRA2 (glycine receptor alpha 2); INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; acrylamide; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: glycine receptor alpha 2 subunit (glycine receptor neonatal); glycine receptor alpha 2 subunit (glycine receptor, neonatal); glycine receptor strychnine-binding subunit; glycine receptor subunit alpha-2; glycine receptor subunit alpha-2-like; glycine receptor, alpha 2 subunit; LOC100910572; RNNEOGLY
