High impact information on GRID2

  • Here we study a mouse locus containing the ionotropic glutamate receptor delta 2 (grid2) gene in which spontaneous chromosome rearrangements occur frequently, giving rise to mutant animals in inbred populations [1].
  • We identify and clone common fragile sites overlapping the mouse grid2 gene and its human ortholog GRID2, lying respectively at bands 6C1 and 4q22 in a 7-Mb-long region of synteny [1].
  • We isolated the human glutamate receptor delta 2 (GRID2) gene, which has 97.0% identity in amino acid sequence to the mouse glutamate receptor delta 2 (Grid2) gene [2].
  • Thus, the mapping of the GRID2 gene to human chromosome 4q22 confirms and refines a region of synteny between mouse and human genomes [2].
