Previous Symbols for S1PR2 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the G protein-coupled receptors, as well as the EDG family of proteins. This protein participates in sphingosine 1-phosphate-induced cell proliferation, survival, and transcriptional activation [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for S1PR2 Gene
S1PR2 (Sphingosine-1-Phosphate Receptor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Nanog in Mammalian ESC Pluripotency. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is LPAR1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for S1PR2 Gene
Receptor for the lysosphingolipid sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P). S1P is a bioactive lysophospholipid that elicits diverse physiological effect on most types of cells and tissues. When expressed in rat HTC4 hepatoma cells, is capable of mediating S1P-induced cell proliferation and suppression of apoptosis
Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) receptors are a group of G-protein-coupled receptors that are currently divided into five subtypes; S1P1, S1P2, S1P3, S1P4 and S1P5. They are expressed in a wide variety of tissues, with each subtype exhibiting a different cell specificity, although they are found at their highest density on leukocytes. S1P receptors couple to different G proteins to mediate a range of biological effects; Gi/o modulates cellular survival, proliferation and motility; G12/13 modulates cytoskeletal remodeling and cell-shape changes and Gq modulates a range of cellular effector functions.
