Invulnerability of retinal ganglion cells to NMDA excitotoxicity
... receptors. These receptors are encoded by at least six gene families:
a single family for AMPA receptors (GluR1, 2, 3, 4), two for
kainate (GluR5, 6, 7 and KA1, 2), and three for NMDA (NR1,
NR2A, B, C, D, and NR3A, B) (Dingledine et al., 1999). These
subunits combine into multimeric complexes to for ...
