Atom-level Analysis of the NMDA Receptor Shows Neuronal Gatekeeper in Action

The NMDA receptor (in green and magenta) is embedded in the neuronal cell membrane (black lollipop-like structures arranged in two rows). The top part of the receptor is outside the neuron and binds neurotransmitters glutamate (green) and glycine (white) in its ligand-binding domains. Credit: Furukawa lab/CSHL, 2020
