Non-neuronal expression of components of the glutamatergic system has been increasingly observed, and our laboratory previously had demonstrated the etiological role of ectopically expressed metabotropic glutamate receptor 1 (Grm1/mGluR1) in mouse models of melanoma. We hypothesize that inappropriate glutamatergic signaling in other cell types can(More)
Although the glutamatergic system usually functions in the CNS, expression has been observed in non-neuronal tissues and a subset of cancers. Metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGlus) are highly "druggable" GPCRs and thus a priority for validation as therapeutic targets. We have previously reported that the aberrant expression of mGlu1 is sufficient to(More)
