The precise nature of redox modulation of N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors is still unclear, although it is thought to be related to the formation and breaking of disulfide bonds. Recent structural data demonstrated the way in which disulfide bonds in the ligand-binding core of the NR1 subunit are arranged. However, the structures were not able to reconcile existing experimental data that examined the effects of mutating these cysteine residues. We have used molecular dynamics (MD) simul...Expand abstract
