Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits extracellularly glutamate-gated ion channel activity; ionotropic glutamate receptor activity; and transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Involved in chemical synaptic transmission. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; cytoplasm; and integral component of plasma membrane. Orthologous to human GRIA2 (glutamate ionotropic receptor AMPA type subunit 2).
