Gene: GLRA3 (glycine receptor alpha 3) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GLRA3
Name: glycine receptor alpha 3
Description: Exhibits extracellularly glycine-gated chloride channel activity and glycine-gated chloride ion channel activity. Predicted to contribute to chloride channel activity and glycine binding activity. Involved in chloride transmembrane transport and protein homooligomerization. Localizes to glycine-gated chloride channel complex.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: glycine receptor alpha 3 subunit; glycine receptor subunit alpha-3; glycine receptor, alpha 3; glycine receptor, alpha-3 polypeptide; ligand gated ion channel
