GluR-delta1 Receptor for glutamate. L-glutamate acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter at many synapses in the central nervous system. The postsynaptic actions of Glu are mediated by a variety of receptors that are named according to their selective agonists. Belongs to the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family. GRID1 subfamily. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
