Receptors, Glutamate .
Excitatory Amino Acid Receptor .
Glutamate Receptor .
Receptor, Glutamate .
Glutamate Receptors .
Excitatory Amino Acid Receptors .
Receptors, Excitatory Amino Acid .
Cell-surface proteins that bind glutamate and trigger changes which influence the behavior of cells. Glutamate receptors include ionotropic receptors (AMPA, kainate, and N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors), which directly control ion channels, and metabotropic receptors which act through second messenger systems. Glutamate receptors are the most common mediators of fast excitatory synaptic transmission in the central nervous system. They have also been implicated in the mechanisms of memory and of many diseases. .
Receptors, Ionotropic Glutamate .
Ionotropic Glutamate Receptors .
Glutamate Receptors, Ionotropic .
A class of ligand-gated ion channel receptors that have specificity for GLUTAMATE. They are distinct from METABOTROPIC GLUTAMATE RECEPTORS which act through a G-protein-coupled mechanism. .
Receptors, Metabotropic Glutamate .
Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor .
Glutamate Receptor, Metabotropic .
Receptor, Metabotropic Glutamate .
Glutamate Receptors, Metabotropic .
Metabotropic Glutamate Receptors .
Receptors, Glutamate, Metabotropic .
Cell surface proteins that bind glutamate and act through G-proteins to influence second messenger systems. Several types of metabotropic glutamate receptors have been cloned. They differ in pharmacology, distribution, and mechanisms of action. .
