Rescue of abnormal phenotypes in delta2 glutamate receptor-deficient mice by the extracellular N-terminal and intracellular C-terminal domains of the delta2 glutamate receptor.


The delta2 glutamate receptor (GluRdelta2) is expressed predominantly in cerebellar Purkinje cells. GluRdelta2 knock-out mice show impaired synaptogenesis and loss of long-term depression (LTD) at parallel fiber/Purkinje cell synapses, and persistent multiple climbing fiber (CF) innervation of Purkinje cells, resulting in severe ataxia. To identify domains… (More)
