Functioni

Conantokins inhibit N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. This toxin inhibits both NR2A/GRIN2A and NR2B/GRIN2B subunits of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor-mediated calcium influx in central nervous system neurons. Induces sleep-like symptoms in young mice and hyperactivity in older mice.1 Publication

Similar proteinsi

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
