Activation of Ca-permeable Kainate receptors (R-HSA-451311)

Species Homo sapiens

Summation

Kainate receptors that are assembled with subunits GRIK1-5, are Ca2+ permeable if GRIK1 and GRIK2 are not edited at the Q/R or other sites.
These channels permit Ca2+ upon activation by glutamate or other agonists.
