glutamate ionotropic receptor NMDA type subunit 1

Gene Summary

Enables several functions, including amino acid binding activity; amyloid-beta binding activity; and ligand-gated ion channel activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of dendritic spine maintenance; protein heterotetramerization; and response to fungicide. Located in several cellular components, including dendrite; postsynaptic density; and synaptic cleft. Is integral component of plasma membrane. Part of NMDA selective glutamate receptor complex. Is active in glutamatergic synapse; hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse; and parallel fiber to Purkinje cell synapse. Is integral component of postsynaptic density membrane and integral component of presynaptic membrane. Biomarker of cognitive disorder; middle cerebral artery infarction; placental insufficiency; sciatic neuropathy; and status epilepticus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in alcohol use disorder; autosomal dominant non-syndromic intellectual disability 8; and cerebral infarction. Orthologous to human GRIN1 (glutamate ionotropic receptor NMDA type subunit 1). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
