Group 1 of these metabotropic glutamate receptors (which modulate the NMDA receptors) are thought be the neurological basis for autism and Fragile X (Chen, 2012).
In collaboration with the House Ear Institute in Los Angeles, the researchers discovered a gene that produces a key protein in the inner ear - the cochlea - called glutamate receptor metabotropic 7 (GRM7).
The two main glutamate receptors in the brain are NMDA and AMPA receptors, which play critical roles in human learning and memory Both types are made of four subunits and, within each receptor, these subunits are organized in pairs called dimers.
A sampling of topics: neurochemical and developmental aspects of glutamate receptors in the retina, insights from structure-function studies of AMPA receptor agonists and competitive antagonists, NMDA receptor-mediated activation of arachidonic acid and nitric oxide signaling pathways in the spinal processing of pain, AMPA receptor-mediated neuronal death in motor neuron disease, excitotoxicity and white matter damage, and chemoreception of umami in caterpillars.
