Gene: Grik2 (glutamate receptor, ionotropic, kainate 2 (beta 2)) Mus musculus
Symbol: Grik2
Name: glutamate receptor, ionotropic, kainate 2 (beta 2)
Description: Glutamate receptors are the predominant excitatory neurotransmitter receptors in the mammalian brain and are activated in a variety of normal neurophysiologic processes. This gene product belongs to the kainate family of glutamate receptors, which are composed of four subunits and function as ligand-activated ion channels. The subunit encoded by this gene is subject to RNA editing at multiple sites within the first and second transmembrane domains, which is thought to alter the structure and function of the receptor complex. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have also been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
