Previous GeneCards Identifiers for NTSR1 Gene
Neurotensin receptor 1 belongs to the large superfamily of G-protein coupled receptors. NTSR1 mediates the multiple functions of neurotensin, such as hypotension, hyperglycemia, hypothermia, antinociception, and regulation of intestinal motility and secretion. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for NTSR1 Gene
NTSR1 (Neurotensin Receptor 1 (High Affinity)) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and G-protein coupled neurotensin receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is NTSR2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NTSR1 Gene
G-protein coupled receptor for the tridecapeptide neurotensin (NTS) (PubMed:8381365, PubMed:21725197, PubMed:23140271). Signaling is effected via G proteins that activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. Signaling leads to the activation of downstream MAP kinases and protects cells against apoptosis (PubMed:21725197).
Neurotensin (NT) is a brain and gastrointestinal peptide that acts on three subtypes of neurotensin receptors: the G-protein-coupled receptors NTS1 (high affinity) and NTS2 (low affinity) and the single transmembrane receptor NTS3 (Sortilin 1).
