GRIA2

A gene on chromosome 4q32.1 that encodes a member of the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate receptor family, which are sensitive to alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate (AMPA) and function as ligand-activated cation channels.

Neuronal glutamate receptor subunits in hippocampus responded selectively to nPM inhalation: GluAl protein levels were decreased by 35% (Figure 2A), whereas GluA2 was not significantly altered (Figure 2B).
They identified four distinct conformations in an AMPA receptor bound to a GluA2 agonist (which triggers the receptor response).
