Biologically Significant Variant Comments
GluA3 exists as alternatively spliced ‘flip’ and ‘flop’ isoforms which differ with respect to a cassette of 35 amino acids in the extracellular loop between M3 and M4 [3,12]. Tetrameric receptors assembled from the ‘flip’ isoform enter the desensitized state more slowly, and recover more quickly, than those formed from the ‘flop’ isoform [4,8]. RNA editing (AGA->IGA) occurs at a codon for arginine (unedited), or glycine (edited) at a locus with the extracellular loop that immediately precedes the alternatively spliced ‘flip’ and ‘flop’ modules. Edited channels recover from desensitization at a faster rate than those that are unedited [5].
