Background: The neurotransmitter L-glutamate interacts with both ionotropic and metabotropic receptors. The metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs), which are G protein-coupled receptors, have been divided into 3 groups on the basis of sequence homology, putative signal transduction mechanisms, and pharmacologic properties. Group II and group III mGluRs are linked to the inhibition of the cyclic AMP cascade, but differ in their agonist selectivity.
