Gene: Grik3 (glutamate ionotropic receptor kainate type subunit 3) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Grik3
Name: glutamate ionotropic receptor kainate type subunit 3
Description: Exhibits ionotropic glutamate receptor activity. Involved in negative regulation of glutamatergic synaptic transmission and regulation of membrane potential. Localizes to the dendrite cytoplasm; perikaryon; and terminal bouton. Orthologous to human GRIK3 (glutamate ionotropic receptor kainate type subunit 3); PARTICIPATES IN glutamate signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3-chloropropane-1,2-diol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: GluK3; gluR-7; GluR7; glutamate receptor 7; glutamate receptor ionotropic, kainate 3; glutamate receptor subunit kainate subtype; glutamate receptor, ionotropic kainate 3; glutamate receptor, ionotropic, kainate 3; kainate receptor
