Summaries for P2RX5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for P2RX5 Gene

  • The product of this gene belongs to the family of purinoceptors for ATP. This receptor functions as a ligand-gated ion channel. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Read-through transcription also exists between this gene and the neighboring downstream gene, TAX1BP3 (Tax1 binding protein 3). [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011]

GeneCards Summary for P2RX5 Gene

P2RX5 (Purinergic Receptor P2X 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with P2RX5 include Cystinosis. Among its related pathways are Platelet homeostasis and Peptide ligand-binding receptors. GO annotations related to this gene include transmembrane signaling receptor activity and purinergic nucleotide receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is P2RX5-TAX1BP3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for P2RX5 Gene

  • Receptor for ATP that acts as a ligand-gated ion channel.

Tocris Summary for P2RX5 Gene

  • P2X receptors are members of the ligand-gated ion channel family that open in response to extracellular ATP. Each receptor is made up of a trimer of subunits (P2X1-7) all of which share the common structure of two transmembrane domains.
