External Ids for ADIPOR2 Gene
The adiponectin receptors, ADIPOR1 (MIM 607945) and ADIPOR2, serve as receptors for globular and full-length adiponectin (MIM 605441) and mediate increased AMPK (see MIM 602739) and PPAR-alpha (PPARA; MIM 170998) ligand activities, as well as fatty acid oxidation and glucose uptake by adiponectin (Yamauchi et al., 2003 [PubMed 12802337]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ADIPOR2 Gene
ADIPOR2 (Adiponectin Receptor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ADIPOR2 include meconium ileus and obesity. Among its related pathways are Adipocytokine signaling pathway and Respiratory electron transport, ATP synthesis by chemiosmotic coupling, and heat production by uncoupling proteins.. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is ADIPOR1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ADIPOR2 Gene
Receptor for globular and full-length adiponectin (APM1), an essential hormone secreted by adipocytes that acts as an antidiabetic. Probably involved in metabolic pathways that regulate lipid metabolism such as fatty acid oxidation. Mediates increased AMPK, PPARA ligand activity, fatty acid oxidation and glucose uptake by adiponectin. Has some intermediate-affinity receptor activity for both globular and full-length adiponectin.
