Summaries for BDKRB2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BDKRB2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a receptor for bradykinin. The 9 aa bradykinin peptide elicits many responses including vasodilation, edema, smooth muscle spasm and pain fiber stimulation. This receptor associates with G proteins that stimulate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. Alternate start codons result in two isoforms of the protein. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for BDKRB2 Gene

BDKRB2 (Bradykinin Receptor B2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with BDKRB2 include Angioedema and Hereditary Angioedema. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and Development Endothelin-1/EDNRA signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and protease binding. An important paralog of this gene is ACKR3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BDKRB2 Gene

  • Receptor for bradykinin. It is associated with G proteins that activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system.

Tocris Summary for BDKRB2 Gene

  • Bradykinin and related kinins are a family of small peptides which act as mediators of pain and inflammation. They exert a variety of biological effects on the endothelium and peripheral circulation through their action on two bradykinin receptor subtypes: B1 and B2.
