|Precautions||Grik3 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for glutamate that functions as ligand-gated ion channel in the central nervous system and plays an important role in excitatory synaptic transmission. L-glutamate acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter at many synapses in the central nervous system. The postsynaptic actions of Glu are mediated by a variety of receptors that are named according to their selective agonists. This receptor binds domoate > kainate >> L-glutamate = quisqualate >> AMPA = NMDA.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell junction, synapse, postsynaptic cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|

Grik3 Antibody: Glutamate receptors are the predominant excitatory neurotransmitter receptors in the mammalian brain and are activated in a variety of normal neurophysiologic processes. Grik3, also known as glutamate receptor 7, belongs to the kainate family of glutamate receptors, which are composed of four subunits and function as ligand-activated ion channels. Grik3 is highly homologous to the related ionotrophic glutamate receptors Grik2 and Grik1. Grik3 has recently been shown to be an essential subunit of presynaptic kainate autoreceptors at hippocampal mossy fiber synapses as grik3-null mice show significantly reduced short- and long-term synaptic potentiation. Other reports have suggested that different polymorphisms in the Grik3 protein may be associated with neurological defects such as recurrent major depressive disorder and schizophrenia. This Grik3 antibody does not cross-react with Grik2.
