The ion channels activated by glutamate are typically divided into two classes. Those that are sensitive to N-methyl-D- aspartate (NMDA) are designated NMDA receptors (NMDAR) while those activated by -amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxalone propionic acid (AMPA) are known as AMPA receptors (AMPAR). The AMPAR are comprised of four distinct Glutamate Receptor Subunits designated (GluR1-4) and they play key roles in virtually all excitatory neurotransmission in the brain. The GluR2 subunit is thought to play a key role in forms of synaptic plasticity such as LTD.
