Anti-KA2 Kainate Receptor Antibody
Bulk Order Anti-KA2 Kainate Receptor Antibody
KA2 kainate receptor
Glutamate Ionotropic Receptor Kainate Type Subunit 5 is encoded by the gene GRIK5. GRIK5 is a member of the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family, GRIK5 subfamily. GRIK5 forms functional heteromeric kainate-preferring ionic channels with the subunits encoded by related gene family members. GRIK5 is highly expressed in the cerebral cortex, pyriform cortex, caudate-putamen, hippocampal complex, medial habenulata, and granule cell layer of the cerebellum. GRIK5 is weakly expressed in the globus pallidus, thalamus, colliculi, and the reticular thalamic nucleus. Diseases associated with GRIK5 include Schizophrenia and Autosomal Recessive Non-Syndromic Intellectual Disability.
