GeneCards Summary for NPY2R Gene
NPY2R (Neuropeptide Y Receptor Y2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and Sympathetic Nerve Pathway (Neuroeffector Junction). GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and calcium channel regulator activity. An important paralog of this gene is NPY1R.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NPY2R Gene
Receptor for neuropeptide Y and peptide YY. The rank order of affinity of this receptor for pancreatic polypeptides is PYY > NPY > PYY (3-36) > NPY (2-36) > [Ile-31, Gln-34] PP > [Leu-31, Pro-34] NPY > PP, [Pro-34] PYY and NPY free acid.
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) receptors are a family of Gi/o-protein-coupled receptors that are currently divided into four subtypes: Y1, Y2, Y4 and Y5. NPY receptors mediate a diverse range of biological actions including stimulation of food intake and modulation of circadian rhythm.
