N-methyl-d-aspartate receptors (NMDARs) display differences in their sensitivity to the channel blockers Mg(2+) and memantine that are dependent on the identity of the NR2 subunit present in the receptor-channel complex. This study used two-electrode voltage-clamp recordings from Xenopus laevis oocytes expressing recombinant NMDARs to investigate the(More)
Members of the six-transmembrane segment family of ion channels share a common structural design. However, there are sequence differences between the members that confer distinct biophysical properties on individual channels. Currently, we do not have 3D structures for all members of the family to help explain the molecular basis for the differences in(More)
