This gene encodes a member of the G protein-coupled receptors, as well as the EDG family of proteins. The encoded protein is a receptor for sphingosine 1-phosphate, which participates in cell proliferation, survival, and transcriptional activation. Defects in this gene have been associated with congenital profound deafness. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2016]
GeneCards Summary for S1PR2 Gene
S1PR2 (Sphingosine-1-Phosphate Receptor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with S1PR2 include deafness, autosomal recessive 68 and autosomal recessive non-syndromic sensorineural deafness type dfnb. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and Sphingolipid signaling pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and integrin binding. 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.
