Gene: GRID2 (glutamate ionotropic receptor delta type subunit 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GRID2
Name: glutamate ionotropic receptor delta type subunit 2
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including PDZ domain binding activity; scaffold protein binding activity; and transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Involved in excitatory synapse assembly; positive regulation of long-term synaptic depression; and positive regulation of synapse assembly. Predicted to localize to dendritic spine; ionotropic glutamate receptor complex; and postsynaptic density membrane. Implicated in autosomal recessive spinocerebellar ataxia 18.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
