Receptor for glutamate. The activity of this receptor is mediated by a G-protein that inhibits adenylate cyclase activity. May mediate suppression of neurotransmission or may be involved in synaptogenesis or synaptic stabilization. Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 3 family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
