|Function||Ionotropic glutamate receptor. L-glutamate acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter at many synapses in the central nervous system. Binding of the excitatory neurotransmitter L- glutamate induces a conformation change, leading to the opening of the cation channel, and thereby converts the chemical signal to an electrical impulse. The receptor then desensitizes rapidly and enters a transient inactive state, characterized by the presence of bound agonist. In the presence of CACNG4 or CACNG7 or CACNG8, shows resensitization which is characterized by a delayed accumulation of current flux upon continued application of glutamate.|

Glutamic acid is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system. Glutamate receptors are classified on the basis of their activation by different agonists (1-3). GluR1, human glutamate receptor type 1, is an integral membrane protein that is widely expressed in the human brain. The postsynaptic actions of glutamic acid are mediated by a variety of receptors that are named according to their selective agonists. GluR1 is known to bind a kainate subtype of agonist. It has been found that malfunctioning of the glutamatergic system may result in certain brain disorders and neurodegeneration (3).
