Gene: GLRA2 (glycine receptor alpha 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GLRA2
Name: glycine receptor alpha 2
Description: The glycine receptor consists of two subunits, alpha and beta, and acts as a pentamer. The protein encoded by this gene is an alpha subunit and can bind strychnine. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: GLR; glycine receptor alpha 2 subunit; glycine receptor subunit alpha-2; glycine receptor, alpha 2; glycine receptor, alpha-2 polypeptide
