IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • FunctionReceptor for glutamate. 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 kainate > quisqualate > domoate > L-glutamate >> AMPA >> NMDA = 1S,3R-ACPD.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family. GRIK5 subfamily.
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane. Cell junction > synapse > postsynaptic cell membrane.
