Ionotropic Glutamate Receptors (iGluR) are important in development and functions of nervous system and are implicated in the etiology of various dysfunctions like Alzheimer?s, Parkinson?s and Neurolathyrism. This receptor mediate excitatatory synaptic transmission through ligand induced opening of transmembrane ion channels. In this study we employed the molecular modeling approach to explore the binding affinities of glutamate and β-ODAP (β-N-oxalyl-L,α,β-diamino propionic acid) with the (iGluRs) by using Accelrys Drug Discovery suite. The molecular modeling studies revealed promising binding interactions of these ligands with the iGluRs amino terminal domain (PDB ID: 3SAJ). The ligand ? target model generated by Discovery studio is validated by Ramachandran plot in PROCHECK analysis. The results obtained suggests a novel mechanism by which the amino terminal domain of iGluRs participating in these interactions.
