Cloning and functional expression of a cDNA encoding the mouse beta 2 subunit of the kainate-selective glutamate receptor channel.

Abstract

The primary structure of the mouse glutamate receptor beta 2 subunit has been deduced by cloning and sequencing cDNA. The beta 2 subunit has structural characteristics common to the subunits of glutamate-gated ion channels. Expression of the cloned cDNA in Xenopus oocytes yields functional glutamate receptor channels selective for kainate.
