glutamate ionotropic receptor NMDA type subunit 2A
The GRIN2A gene codes for the GluN2A protein, which is a subunit of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor. The NMDA receptor is a neurotransmitter-gated ion channel that plays a role in the functioning of synapses in the brain (Endele et al., 2010).
A change in this gene was identified in a UDN participant. Research is underway to see if this change is causing symptoms in this participant.
