Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits NMDA glutamate receptor activity; calcium channel activity; and transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Involved in several processes, including dendrite development; prepulse inhibition; and regulation of synaptic vesicle exocytosis. Localizes to glutamatergic synapse; neuronal cell body; and postsynaptic membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; foot bone; hand mesenchyme; jaw; and thymus primordium. Orthologous to human GRIN3A (glutamate ionotropic receptor NMDA type subunit 3A).
