High impact information on Glra3

  • The density of GlyR alpha4-expressing synapses in wildtype, Glra1(ot/ot), and Glra3(-/-) mouse retinas did not differ significantly [1].
  • Glycine receptors (GlyRs) and their role in retinal circuitry were analyzed immunocytochemically in wild-type and GlyR alpha3 subunit-deficient (Glra3(-/-)) mouse retinae [2].
