General description

NR1 (NMDA1or NMDAR1, also known as GRIN1) along with the NR2 subunit forms a heterodimer that make up the NMDA receptor. The NMDA receptor (NMDAR) is characterized as a ionotropic receptor for glutamate. As the name suggests, (NMDA (N-methyl D-aspartate) is an agonist for the receptor. A distinct characteristic of the NMDA receptor is that it is both ligand-gated and voltage-dependent based on its sensitivity to magnesium. Activated NMDA receptors result in the opening of an ion channel that is nonselective to cations. The result is the flow of Na+ and small amounts of Ca2+ ions into the cell and K+ out of the cell. Calcium flux by the NMDARs has been implicated in synaptic plasticity, a mechanism in the cell for learning and memory.
