The Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor GRM2 binds L-glutamate and has been linked to the inhibition of the cyclic AMP signaling cascade. GRM2 is involved in mediating the suppression of neurotransmission and in synaptogenesis and synaptic stabilization. Glutamatergic neurotransmission plays a role in most aspects of normal brain function and can be perturbed in many neuropathologic conditions. GRM2 has been reported in various regions of the human and animal brain, as well as in rat eye and spinal cord. ESTs have been isolated from brain and testis libraries. Caution: GLUR2 refers to Ionotropic Glutamate Receptor 2, not to Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 2 (mGLUR2).
