High impact information on Glra2

  • In addition, the cerebral cortex does not appear to require glycine receptor activity for proper development, as Glra2 knockout mice did not show any electrophysiological responses to glycine [1].
  • Intraspecific variation among 10 Mus musculus domesticus alleles was compared with divergence between M. m. domesticus and M. caroli for Abpa and two X-linked genes, Glra2 and Amg [2].
  • The two telomeric loci, Glra2 and Amg, had higher ratios of polymorphism to divergence than the two loci experiencing lower recombination rates [3].
  • We have mapped the gene for the alpha 2-subunit of the inhibitory glycine receptor (Glra2) to the telomeric end of the mouse X chromosome by backcross analysis of a Mus musculus/Mus spretus interspecific cross [4].
