GRID2 [ENSP00000282020]

Glutamate receptor, ionotropic, delta 2; Receptor for glutamate. L-glutamate acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter at many synapses in the central nervous system. The postsynaptic actions of Glu are mediated by a variety of receptors that are named according to their selective agonists. Promotes synaptogenesis and mediates the D-Serine- dependent long term depression signals and AMPA receptor endocytosis of cerebellar parallel fiber-Purkinje cell (PF-PC) synapses through the beta-NRX1-CBLN1-GRID2 triad complex; Belongs to the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family. GRID2 subfamily.
