We herein report the presence of a variant of the rat metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype 5 (mGluR5) cDNA. In this variant, named mGluR5b, an extra 96 bp sequence is inserted into the originally reported mGluR5 cDNA. The position of this insertion corresponds to that of the 85 bp insertion reported for the alternative form of mGluR1, another subtype of the receptors (designated as mGluR1 beta). No sequence-similarity was found between the additional sequences of the mGluR1 beta and the… Expand
