Page Development

This article was developed based on lectures given in Chemistry 543 by Prof. Clarence E. Schutt at Princeton University.

Topic Page on Glutamate Receptor GluA2 structure

There is a topic page describing in detail the GluA2 structure described in 3kg2. The page is meant to complement the original publication of the structure by Sobolevsky et al.[2][9] with matching colors, etc..
