GeneCards Summary for HTR1E Gene
HTR1E (5-Hydroxytryptamine (Serotonin) Receptor 1E, G Protein-Coupled) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HTR1E include skin papilloma. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and CREB Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and serotonin binding. An important paralog of this gene is HTR1F.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HTR1E Gene
G-protein coupled receptor for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin). Also functions as a receptor for various alkaloids and psychoactive substances. Ligand binding causes a conformation change that triggers signaling via guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins) and modulates the activity of down-stream effectors, such as adenylate cyclase. Signaling inhibits adenylate cyclase activity.
Serotonin 5-ht1E receptors are primarily located in the cortex, caudate putamen, claustrum, hippocampus, and amygdala. The human 5-ht1E receptor gene has been localized to chromosome 6 (6q14-q15). The function of this receptor has yet to be elucidated.
