Status

Functioni

Component of NMDA receptor complexes that function as heterotetrameric, ligand-gated ion channels with high calcium permeability and voltage-dependent sensitivity to magnesium (PubMed:1374164). Channel activation requires binding of the neurotransmitter glutamate to the epsilon subunit, glycine binding to the zeta subunit, plus membrane depolarization to eliminate channel inhibition by Mg2+. Sensitivity to glutamate and channel kinetics depend on the subunit composition; channels containing GRIN1 and GRIN2A have higher sensitivity to glutamate and faster kinetics than channels formed by GRIN1 and GRIN2B (By similarity). Contributes to the slow phase of excitatory postsynaptic current, long-term synaptic potentiation, and learning (PubMed:7816096, PubMed:8987814).By similarity3 Publications

Pathology & Biotechi

Disruption phenotypei

Mutant mice appear grossly normal and are fertile (PubMed:7816096, PubMed:8987814). NMDA channel currents are decreased in mutant brain slices. Contrary to wild-type, where tetanic stimulation leads to a strong long-term increase in synaptic strength, only modest long-term synaptic potentiation is seen in mutant mice (PubMed:7816096). Mossy fiber granule cells from mutant mice present a decrease of the slow component of the excitatory postsynaptic current (PubMed:8987814). The slow component of the excitatory postsynaptic current is nearly abolished in mossy fiber cells from mice lacking both Grin2a and Grin2c (PubMed:8987814). Mutant mice present subtle deficits in spatial learning (PubMed:7816096). Mice lacking both Grin2a and Grin2c display subtle motor deficits; they have no visible phenotype when performing simple tasks, but have decreased ability to walk across a narrow wooden bar, and are unable to stay on a rapidly rotating rod (PubMed:8987814).2 Publications

Domaini

Contains an N-terminal domain, a ligand-binding domain and a transmembrane domain. Agonist binding to the extracellular ligand-binding domains triggers channel gating.By similarity
A hydrophobic region that gives rise to the prediction of a transmembrane span does not cross the membrane, but is part of a discontinuously helical region that dips into the membrane and is probably part of the pore and of the selectivity filter.By similarity
