DLG4

A gene on chromosome 17p13.1 that encodes a member of the membrane-associated guanylate kinase (MAGUK) family that forms a complex with another MAGUK, DLG2, and is recruited into NMDA receptor and potassium channel clusters. DLG2 and DLG4 may interact at postsynaptic sites to form a multimeric scaffold for clustering of receptors, ion channels and signalling proteins.

PSD-95 is a membrane-associated kinase concentrated at glutamatergic synapses.
Delineation of additional PSD-95 binding domains with NMDA receptor NR2 subunits reveals differences between NR2A/PSD-95 and NR2B/PSD-95 association.
In order to find compounds that can detach the PSD-95 protein from the NMDA receptor, one must have a method for measuring the extent to which the compounds bind to PSD-95.
Significant changes in protein levels of NMDA receptor subunits NR1 and NR2A, and NMDA receptor interacting proteins PSD-95 and SAP97 were not detected.
