Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B IH
Glutamate is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system. Regulation of fast excitatory synaptic neurotransmission is mediated primarily by ionotropic glutamate receptors (iGluR)-ligand-gated cation (principally Ca2+) channels found on postsynaptic neurons throughout the central nervous system. iGluR receptors participate in neural development, plasticity, learning and memory, and are implicated in excitatory and neurodegenerative pathologies including stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s chorea and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Pharmacological properties and amino acid sequence similarities allow classification of iGluR into three main subfamilies named for their principal agonists: 1. NMDA receptors and the two non-NMDA receptor subfamilies 2. AMPA receptors and 3. kainate. Glutamate signaling also occurs via a family of G-protein coupled glutamate receptors referred to as the metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluR). mGluRs can modulate excitatory synaptic transmission by regulating neurotransmitter release, influencing ion channel activity, and altering synaptic plasticity. Both ionotropic and metabotropic glutamate receptors are also present on macroglia (astrocytes and oligodendrocytes) where they have been shown to influence gene expression and may be involved in precursor cell proliferation and differentiation.
