Strain development Developed by Drs. H. Kadotani and S. Nakanishi, Kyoto University in 1996.  
Strain description B6.129S6-Grin2a<tm1Nak>. The Grin2a gene is one of the glutamate receptor channel subunit families forming NMDA receptor channel, which is important for synaptic plasticity. Homozygous mutant mice are viable and fertile.

References J Neurosci. 1996 Dec 15;16(24):7859-67.  
Motor discoordination results from combined gene disruption of the NMDA receptor NR2A and NR2C subunits, but not from single disruption of the NR2A or NR2C subunit.
