Summaries for GRIN3A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GRIN3A Gene

  • This gene encodes a subunit of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors, which belong to the superfamily of glutamate-regulated ion channels, and function in physiological and pathological processes in the central nervous system. This subunit shows greater than 90% identity to the corresponding subunit in rat. Studies in the knockout mouse deficient in this subunit suggest that this gene may be involved in the development of synaptic elements by modulating NMDA receptor activity.

GeneCards Summary for GRIN3A Gene

GRIN3A (Glutamate Receptor, Ionotropic, N-Methyl-D-Aspartate 3A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GRIN3A include lingual-facial-buccal dyskinesia. Among its related pathways are Amphetamine addiction and RNA Polymerase I Promoter Opening. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and protein phosphatase 2A binding. An important paralog of this gene is GRIN2A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GRIN3A Gene

  • NMDA receptor subtype of glutamate-gated ion channels with reduced single-channel conductance, low calcium permeability and low voltage-dependent sensitivity to magnesium. Mediated by glycine. May play a role in the development of dendritic spines. May play a role in PPP2CB-NMDAR mediated signaling mechanism (By similarity).

Tocris Summary for GRIN3A Gene

  • NMDA receptors are members of the ionotropic class of glutamate receptors, which also includes Kainate and AMPA receptors. NMDA receptors consist of NR1 subunits combined with NR2 (A-D) or NR3 (A-B) subunits. The ligand-gated channel is permeable to cations.

    • Forms heteromeric channel of a zeta subunit (GRIN1), a epsilon subunit (GRIN2A, GRIN2B, GRIN2C or GRIN2D) and a third subunit (GRIN3A or GRIN3B). Does not form functional homomeric channels. Found in a complex with GRIN1, GRIN2A or GRIN2B and PPP2CB. Probably interacts with PPP2CB. No complex with PPP2CB is detected when NMDARs are stimulated by NMDA (By similarity).
