- AtGLR3.2 LBD structures were solved in complex with agonists glycine and methionine.
- AtGLR3.2 LBD structures show clamshell architecture typical for vertebrate iGluRs.
- Mutation of R133 that is critical for agonist binding increases channel’s activity.
- Structural conservation between GLRs and iGluRs predicts common gating principles.
This work was done in collaboration with Dr. Feijo group from University of Maryland.
