Gene : GRIK5 Homo sapiens

Name  ? glutamate ionotropic receptor kainate type subunit 5 Cytological Location  19q13.2
Brief Description  glutamate ionotropic receptor kainate type subunit 5
Description  This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the glutamate-gated ionic channel family. Glutamate functions as the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system through activation of ligand-gated ion channels and G protein-coupled membrane receptors. The protein encoded by this gene forms functional heteromeric kainate-preferring ionic channels with the subunits encoded by related gene family members. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2014]
