Gene: GLRA2 (glycine receptor alpha 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GLRA2
Name: glycine receptor alpha 2
Description: Exhibits extracellularly glycine-gated chloride channel activity; glycine binding activity; and glycine-gated chloride ion channel activity. Predicted to contribute to chloride channel activity and extracellular ligand-gated ion channel activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to amino acid stimulus; cellular response to ethanol; and cellular response to zinc ion. Localizes to the integral component of plasma membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: GLR; glycine receptor alpha 2 subunit; glycine receptor subunit alpha-2; glycine receptor, alpha 2; glycine receptor, alpha-2 polypeptide
