Localization of the human mGluR4 gene within an epilepsy susceptibility locus(1).


The family of metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) consists of eight homologous G-protein coupled receptors. Several of the mGluRs, including the mGluR4 receptor subtype, are localized presynaptically; activation of this receptor induces an inhibition of neurotransmitter release from nerve terminals. Disruption of the mGluR4 gene in mice results in… (More)
