Ca2+ influx into the post-synaptic cell (R-HSA-432164) [Homo sapiens]


NMDA receptors are activated upon binding of two ligands, glutamate and glycine.
The activation leads to Ca2+ influx into the post-synaptic cell. The local rise in the Ca2+ ion concentration further leads to activation of several Ca2+ dependent pathways leading to long term changes in the synapse.
