Target Background

Component of NMDA receptor complexes that function as heterotetrameric, ligand-gated ion channels with high calcium permeability and voltage-dependent sensitivity to magnesium. Channel activation requires binding of the neurotransmitter glutamate to the epsilon subunit, glycine binding to the zeta subunit, plus membrane depolarization to eliminate channel inhibition by Mg(2+). Sensitivity to glutamate and channel kinetics depend on the subunit composition.
Gene References into Functions
  1. Glycans potentiate the effect of GluN1 and GluN2B receptors. PMID: 28378791
  2. In this study, we report a success of the WES approach to the identification of a genetic cause of a challenging case, undiagnosed on clinical grounds. We identified the causative missense mutation (p.Met727Val) in exon 16 of the GRIN1 gene. As the p.Met727Val mutation shown by WES is in the same GluN1 domain, we infer that the pathogenic variant impact on NMDAR is likely similar to that induced by p.Glu662Lys mutation. PMID: 29194067
  3. one base difference in the GRIN1M promoter sequence (G --> C) results in the inability of the sequence to form a parallel G-quadruplex. PMID: 28702665

PMID: 28228639
  6. Mice with GRIN1 disrupted in the intralaminar thalamic nuclei exhibited various schizophrenia-like phenotypes, including deficits in working memory, long-term spatial memory, and attention, as well as impulsivity, impaired prepulse inhibition, hyperlocomotion and hyperarousal. PMID: 28244984

  17. Study found GluN receptor subunit-specific changes in mixed subcortical ischemic vascular dementia(SIVD)/Alzheimer's disease(AD) (decreased GluN1) and SIVD (increased GluN2A and 2B), likely reflecting interaction of ischemic neurovascular and AD processes PMID: 25261450
