General description

NR2 or glutamate receptor, ionotropic, N-methyl D-aspartate 2 (NMDA2; NMDAR2) along with the NR1 subunit forms a heterodimer that make up the NMDA receptor. By alternative splicing there are various isoforms of NR2 classified as NR2A through D. 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. The NR1 subunit binds glycine while the NR2 subunit binds glutamine for activation. 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.
