Summaries for GIPR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GIPR Gene

  • This gene encodes a G-protein coupled receptor for gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP), which was originally identified as an activity in gut extracts that inhibited gastric acid secretion and gastrin release, but subsequently was demonstrated to stimulate insulin release in the presence of elevated glucose. Mice lacking this gene exhibit higher blood glucose levels with impaired initial insulin response after oral glucose load. Defect in this gene thus may contribute to the pathogenesis of diabetes.

GeneCards Summary for GIPR Gene

GIPR (Gastric Inhibitory Polypeptide Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GIPR include adrenal cortical adenoma and adrenal adenoma. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and cAMP signaling pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and peptide hormone binding. An important paralog of this gene is MGC57346-CRHR1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GIPR Gene

  • This is a receptor for GIP. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylyl cyclase.
