Gene: GLRA4 (glycine receptor alpha 4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GLRA4
Name: glycine receptor alpha 4
Description: This gene encodes a protein which has a neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel ligand binding domain. The encoded protein is very similar to a mouse protein which is a subunit of the retinal glycine receptor. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: glycine receptor subunit alpha-4
