  • Target

    • Function

      Receptor for glutamate. The activity of this receptor is mediated by a G-protein that inhibits adenylate cyclase activity. May mediate suppression of neurotransmission or may be involved in synaptogenesis or synaptic stabilization.
    • Tissue specificity

      Widely expressed in different regions of the adult brain as well as in fetal brain.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 3 family.
    • Cellular localization

      Cell membrane.
