Summaries for GNRHR2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GNRHR2 Gene

  • In non-hominoid primates and non-mammalian vertebrates, the gonadotropin releasing hormone 2 receptor gene (GnRHR2) encodes a seven-transmembrane G-protein coupled receptor. However, in human, the corresponding reading frame contains a premature stop codon, which has been suggested to encode a selenocysteine residue, but there is no solid evidence for selenocysteine incorporation (PMID: 12538601). It appears that the human GnRHR2 transcription occurs but the gene does not likely produce a functional multi-transmembrane protein. A non-transcribed pseudogene of GnRHR2 is located on chromosome 14. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]

GeneCards Summary for GNRHR2 Gene

GNRHR2 (Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone Receptor 2 (Pseudogene)) is a Pseudogene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and RET signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include peptide binding and gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GNRHR2 Gene

  • Putative receptor for gonadotropin releasing hormone II (GnRH II) which is most probably non-functional.

Tocris Summary for GNRHR2 Gene

  • Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) receptors are a group of Gq/11-protein-coupled receptors that are divided into two subtypes; GnRH and GnRH2. GnRH receptors are predominantly expressed by pituitary gonadotrophs. GnRH2 is silenced in humans.
