 Synonyms & Historicals
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. .
Excitatory Amino Acids .
Excitatory Amino Acid .
Acid, Excitatory Amino .
Acids, Excitatory Amino .
Amino Acid, Excitatory .
Amino Acids, Excitatory .
Endogenous amino acids released by neurons as excitatory neurotransmitters. Glutamic acid is the most common excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain. Aspartic acid has been regarded as an excitatory transmitter for many years, but the extent of its role as a transmitter is unclear. .
