Ion channels activated by glutamate are typically divided into two classes. Those sensitive to N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) are designated NMDA receptors (NMDAR) while those activated by a-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxalone propionic acid (AMPA) are known as AMPA receptors (AMPAR). AMPAR are comprised of four distinct Glutamate Receptor Subunits (GluR1-4) and they play key roles in almost all excitatory neurotransmission in the brain. The GluR2 subunit is widely expressed throughout the nervous system where it is thought to play key roles in synaptic plasticity and learning and memory.
