  • Function

    Ionotropic glutamate receptor. L-glutamate acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter at many synapses in the central nervous system. Binding of the excitatory neurotransmitter L-glutamate induces a conformation change, leading to the opening of the cation channel, and thereby converts the chemical signal to an electrical impulse. The receptor then desensitizes rapidly and enters a transient inactive state, characterized by the presence of bound agonist.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family. GRIA4 subfamily.
  • Post-translational

    Palmitoylated. Depalmitoylated upon glutamate stimulation. Cys-611 palmitoylation leads to Golgi retention and decreased cell surface expression. In contrast, Cys-837 palmitoylation does not affect cell surface expression but regulates stimulation-dependent endocytosis.
  • Cellular localization

    Cell membrane. Cell junction > synapse > postsynaptic cell membrane.
