This gene encodes a G-protein coupled receptor 1 family member involved in the complement system of the innate immune response. Unlike classical G-protein coupled receptors, the encoded protein does not associate with intracellular G-proteins. It may instead modulate signal transduction through the beta-arrestin pathway, and may alternatively act as a decoy receptor. This gene may be involved in coronary artery disease and in the pathogenesis of sepsis. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2012]
GeneCards Summary for C5AR2 Gene
C5AR2 (Complement Component 5a Receptor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with C5AR2 include coronary artery disease and artery disease. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include N-formyl peptide receptor activity and C5a anaphylatoxin receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is FPR2.
