Gene: Glra1 (glycine receptor, alpha 1 subunit) Mus musculus
Symbol: Glra1
Name: glycine receptor, alpha 1 subunit
Description: Exhibits extracellularly glycine-gated chloride channel activity; glycine binding activity; and transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Predicted to contribute to chloride channel activity. Involved in several processes, including adult walking behavior; chemical synaptic transmission; and regulation of respiratory gaseous exchange by nervous system process. Localizes to several cellular components, including external side of plasma membrane; glycinergic synapse; and inhibitory synapse. Is expressed in brain and spinal cord. Used to study hyperekplexia 1. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hyperekplexia 1. Orthologous to human GLRA1 (glycine receptor alpha 1); PARTICIPATES IN Inhibitory synaptic transmission pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane; genistein.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
