      • glutamate receptor, ionotropic, N-methyl D-aspartate 2A
      Background InformationNR2 or glutamate receptor, ionotropic, N-methyl D-aspartate 2 (NMDA2; NMDAR2) along with the NR1 subunit forms a heterodimer that make up the NMDA receptor. By alternative splicing there are various isoforms of NR2 classified as NR2A through D. The NMDA receptor (NMDAR) is characterized as a ionotropic receptor for glutamate. As the name suggests, (NMDA (N-methyl D-aspartate) is an agonist for the receptor. A distinct characteristic of the NMDA receptor is that it is both ligand-gated and voltage-dependent based on its sensitivity to magnesium. The NR1 subunit binds glycine while the NR2 subunit binds glutamine for activation. Activated NMDA receptors result in the opening of an ion channel that is nonselective to cations. The result is the flow of Na+ and small amounts of Ca2+ ions into the cell and K+ out of the cell. Calcium flux by the NMDARs has been implicated in synaptic plasticity, a mechanism in the cell for learning and memory.

      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: NMDA receptor subtype of glutamate-gated ion channels possesses high calcium permeability and voltage-dependent sensitivity to magnesium. Activation requires binding of agonist to both types of subunits.

      SUBUNIT STRUCTURE: Forms heteromeric channel of a zeta subunit (GRIN1), a epsilon subunit (GRIN2A, GRIN2B, GRIN2C or GRIN2D) and a third subunit (GRIN3A or GRIN3B). Found in a complex with GRIN1 and GRIN3B. Found in a complex with GRIN1, GRIN3A and PPP2CB. Interacts with PDZ domains of AIP1, INADL and DLG4 (By similarity). Interacts with HIP1 and NETO1. Interacts with LRFN2 (By similarity).

      SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell junction › synapse › postsynaptic cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein

      SEQUENCE SIMILARITIES: Belongs to the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family. NR2A/GRIN2A subfamily. [View classification]
