The N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) subtype of the glutamate receptor has recently been identified in bone, but the molecular composition of this receptor expressed by bone cells is unknown. NMDA receptor (NMDAR) is a hetero-oligomeric protein composed of two classes of subunits, the essential subunit NR1 and NR2A to D subunits that do not by themselves produce functional channels but potentiate NR1 activity and confer functional variability to the receptor. These subunits coassemble in different… CONTINUE READING
