Official Full Name
glutamate receptor, ionotropic, kainate 4
Background
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.
Synonyms
GRIK4; glutamate receptor, ionotropic, kainate 4; GRIK; glutamate receptor, ionotropic kainate 4; GluK4; KA1; glutamate receptor KA1; glutamate receptor KA-1; excitatory amino acid receptor 1; EAA1
