GeneCards Summary for FPR2 Gene
FPR2 (Formyl Peptide Receptor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and N-formyl peptide receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is FPR3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FPR2 Gene
Low affinity receptor for N-formyl-methionyl peptides, which are powerful neutrophils chemotactic factors. Binding of FMLP to the receptor causes activation of neutrophils. This response is mediated via a G-protein that activates a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. The activation of LXA4R could result in an anti-inflammatory outcome counteracting the actions of proinflammatory signals such as LTB4 (leukotriene B4).
The formyl peptide receptor family, FPR1, FPR2 and FPR3 (formerly FPR, FPRL1 and FPRL2 respectively) are Gi-protein-coupled receptors that are expressed mainly by mammalian phagocytic leukocytes. FPRs are involved in antibacterial host defence and inflammation.
