Author(s): A. Simon, A. Bencsura, J. Kardos.

Abstract:

Comparison of binding interactions of a bacterial Glu transporter homologue and the extracellular binding domain of metabotropic Glu receptor subtype (mGlu1) showed Glu adopting bent and extended conformations in Glu transporter and mGlu1, respectively.

Keywords: Glutamate transporter, metabotropic Glu receptor subtype 1, docking and molecular dynamics, glutamate, L-trans-2, 4-PDC, GABA
