Metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) are widely distributed in mammalian brain, and are classified into three groups (Group I-III) according to mode of action: by I) homology of amino acid sequence, II) ligand selectivity, and III) signal transduction pathway. The mGluR-mediated signaling cascade is mainly investigated with the use of receptor-expressed non-neuronal cells; and thus, signaling mechanism in the central nervous systems remains to be elucidated. The aim of this study was to… CONTINUE READING
