Literature on GRIK5
Glutamate receptor, ionotropic, kainate 5; 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. This receptor binds kainate > quisqualate > domoate > L- glutamate >> AMPA >> NMDA = 1S,3R-ACPD; Belongs to the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family. GRIK5 subfamily.
Synonyms: GRIK5, GRIK5p, hGRIK5, GRIK5-001, GRIK5-002 ...
