Gene: Grm6 (glutamate metabotropic receptor 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Grm6
Name: glutamate metabotropic receptor 6
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits adenylate cyclase inhibiting G-protein coupled glutamate receptor activity; glutamate receptor activity (ortholog); protein homodimerization activity (ortholog); INVOLVED IN adenylate cyclase-inhibiting G-protein coupled glutamate receptor signaling pathway; chemical synaptic transmission; detection of light stimulus involved in visual perception (ortholog); PARTICIPATES IN glutamate signaling pathway; ASSOCIATED WITH congenital stationary night blindness (ortholog); congenital stationary night blindness 1B (ortholog); congenital stationary night blindness 1C (ortholog); FOUND IN endoplasmic reticulum membrane (ortholog); Golgi membrane (ortholog); integral component of plasma membrane (ortholog); INTERACTS WITH 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: glutamate receptor, metabotropic 6; metabotropic glutamate receptor 6; mGluR6
