Glutamate receptors are the predominant excitatory neurotransmitter receptors in the mammalian brain and are activated in a variety of normal neurophysiologic processes. This gene product belongs to a family of glutamate receptors that are sensitive to alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate (AMPA) and function as ligand-activated cation channels. These channels are assembled from 4 related subunits Gria1-4. The subunit encoded by this gene (Gria2) is subject to RNA editing (CAG->CGG; Q->R) within the second transmembrane domain which is thought to render the channel impermeable to Ca(2+). Alternative splicing resulting in transcript variants encoding different isoforms (including the flip and flop isoforms that vary in their signal transduction properties) has been noted for this gene.
