Summary of GRIN3A

Increased NR3A function can cause some neurons to become overexcited and get damaged.

The Function of GRIN3A

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.
