Gene information for GRIK5 (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID2901
Official gene symbolGRIK5
Full nameglutamate receptor, ionotropic, kainate 5
Gene summaryThis gene encodes a protein that belongs to the glutamate-gated ionic channel family. Glutamate functions as the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system through activation of ligand-gated ion channels and G protein-coupled membrane receptors. The protein encoded by this gene forms functional heteromeric kainate-preferring ionic channels with the subunits encoded by related gene family members. [provided by RefSeq]
