Summaries for NMUR1 Gene

GeneCards Summary for NMUR1 Gene

NMUR1 (Neuromedin U Receptor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and Interleukin-3, 5 and GM-CSF signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and neuromedin U receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is GPR39.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NMUR1 Gene

  • Receptor for the neuromedin-U and neuromedin-S neuropeptides.

Tocris Summary for NMUR1 Gene

  • Neuromedin U (NMU) receptors are a group of Gq/11-protein-coupled receptors that are currently divided into two subtypes: NMU1 and NMU2. The two subtypes have distinct tissue distributions: NMU1 is expressed in the periphery, whilst NMU2 is expressed in the CNS.

mRNA Expression by UniProt/SwissProt for NMUR1 Gene

Tissue specificity: Expressed in greatest abundance in peripheral organs, particularly in elements of the gastrointestinal and urogenital systems with highest levels in testes. In central nervous system structures express levels are much lower than those seen in peripheral organs. Within the CNS, has been detected in highest abundance in the cerebellum, dorsal root ganglia, hippocampus, and spinal cord.
