GluR1 (glutamate receptor 1) is an ionotropic glutamate receptor. L-glutamate acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter at many synapses in the central nervous system. Binding of the excitatory neurotransmitter, L-glutamate, induces a conformation change that leads to the opening of the cation channel and converts the chemical signal to an electrical impulse. Then, the receptor desensitizes rapidly and enters a transiet inactive state characterized by the presence of a bound agonist. In the presence of CACNG4, CACNG7, or CACNG8 GluR1 shows resensitization which is characterized by a delayed accumulation of current flux upon continued application of glutamate.
