Previous GeneCards Identifiers for P2RY1 Gene
The product of this gene belongs to the family of G-protein coupled receptors. This family has several receptor subtypes with different pharmacological selectivity, which overlaps in some cases, for various adenosine and uridine nucleotides. This receptor functions as a receptor for extracellular ATP and ADP. In platelets binding to ADP leads to mobilization of intracellular calcium ions via activation of phospholipase C, a change in platelet shape, and probably to platelet aggregation.

P2RY1 (Purinergic Receptor P2Y, G-Protein Coupled, 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and GPCR Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is PTAFR.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for P2RY1 Gene
Receptor for extracellular adenine nucleotides such as ATP and ADP. In platelets binding to ADP leads to mobilization of intracellular calcium ions via activation of phospholipase C, a change in platelet shape, and probably to platelet aggregation.
P2Y receptors are G-protein-coupled receptors that respond to extracellular purine and pyrimidine nucleotides. To date, eight mammalian P2Y receptors are known (P2Y1, P2Y2, P2Y4, P2Y6, P2Y11-14) as well as the non-mammalian p2y3, p2y8 and p2y receptors.
