Both non-NMDA and
NMDAR are cation selective.
Non-NMDAR (AMPA/
Kainate) regulate a channel
permeable to Na and K ions
NMDA allows Ca currents
along with Na and K currents
Most AMPARs and NMDAR
are heterotetrameric = dimer
of dimers
AMPA (GluR2+ GluR1,3 or 4)
NMDA (NR1 + NR2)
Excitatory AA receptors
(Glutamate)
Most GABAA receptors are
believed to be composed of ,
