mGluR protein is strongly expressed in the ellipsoid body ring in the innervation regions of R3 and R4d ring neurons. In the fan-shaped body expression is detected in the central and ventral layers, in the bulb (lateral triangle) in the nodulus (stronger expression in the dorsal region layer III) and protocerebral bridge. Co-localisation with Scer\GAL4VGlut.PD is observed in the ellipsoid body rings R3 and R4d, in the fan-shaped body, nodulus and protocerebral bridge.
There are fourteen mGluR immunopositive cell bodies are found in the third instar larval brain. Expression of mGlu</up>RA is detected in the dorsal and ventral aspect of the adult fan-shaped body of the central complex. Three neurons of the metathoracic neuromere, and four pairs of neurons in the abdominal neuromere are mGluR immunopositive.

Please Note This section lists cDNAs and ESTs that fall within the genomic extent of the gene model, which may include cDNAs and ESTs of genes within introns, or of overlapping genes. Please see GBrowse for alignment of the cDNAs and ESTs to the gene model.
For each fully sequenced cDNA the DGRC maintains various forms of the cDNA (e.g tagged or untagged) in several different host vectors for subsequent cloning and expression in Drosophila and Drosophila cell lines.
Source for identity of: mGluR mGluRA
Removed 'A' suffix from gene symbol to mirror the gene fullname, and because it implies there are additional mGluR genes in the genome (there are not).
Fmr1 and mGluR convergently regulate presynaptic properties. At the protein level, Fmr1 is upregulated in mGluR mutants, and mGluR is upregulated in Fmr1 mutants. Null mGluR mutants display defects in coordinated movement behavior, which are rescued by removing Fmr1 expression. Null Fmr1 mutants display increased neuromuscular junction presynaptic structural complexity and elevated presynaptic vesicle pools, which are rescued by blocking mGluR signaling. Null Fmr1 brain neurons similarly display increased presynaptic architectural complexity, which is rescued by blocking mGluR signaling.
When co-expressed in Xenopus oocytes with a mammalian G-protein coupled inwardly rectifying potassium channel protein the Glu-RA protein activates an inwardly rectifying potassium current.
Encodes a G protein-coupled metabotropic glutamate receptor.
