Summaries for TACR3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TACR3 Gene

  • This gene belongs to a family of genes that function as receptors for tachykinins. Receptor affinities are specified by variations in the 5'-end of the sequence. The receptors belonging to this family are characterized by interactions with G proteins and 7 hydrophobic transmembrane regions. This gene encodes the receptor for the tachykinin neurokinin 3, also referred to as neurokinin B. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for TACR3 Gene

TACR3 (Tachykinin Receptor 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TACR3 include hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 11 with or without anosmia and tacr3-related isolated gonadotropin-releasing hormone deficiency. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include tachykinin receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is NPFFR1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TACR3 Gene

  • This is a receptor for the tachykinin neuropeptide neuromedin-K (neurokinin B). It is associated with G proteins that activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. The rank order of affinity of this receptor to tachykinins is: neuromedin-K > substance K > substance P

Tocris Summary for TACR3 Gene

  • The neurokinin (NK) 3 receptor is a member of the tachykinin family of G-protein-coupled receptors which also includes NK1 and NK2 receptors. The NK3 receptor is predominantly expressed in the CNS (hippocampus, hypothalamus, substantia nigra, dorsal horn of the spinal cord) with limited expression in the periphery. NK3 receptors are thought to mediate afferent neuron transmission and intestinal motility and secretion. The receptor displays greater potency for the endogenous agonist neurokinin B than neurokinin A and substance P (NKB > NKA > SP). The human gene encoding the NK3 receptor has been localized on chromosome 4 (4q25).

Disorders for TACR3 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for TACR3 Gene (162332)


  • Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 11 with or without anosmia (HH11) [MIM:614840]: A disorder characterized by absent or incomplete sexual maturation by the age of 18 years, in conjunction with low levels of circulating gonadotropins and testosterone and no other abnormalities of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis. In some cases, it is associated with non-reproductive phenotypes, such as anosmia, cleft palate, and sensorineural hearing loss. Anosmia or hyposmia is related to the absence or hypoplasia of the olfactory bulbs and tracts. Hypogonadism is due to deficiency in gonadotropin-releasing hormone and probably results from a failure of embryonic migration of gonadotropin-releasing hormone-synthesizing neurons. In the presence of anosmia, idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism is referred to as Kallmann syndrome, whereas in the presence of a normal sense of smell, it has been termed normosmic idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (nIHH). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19079066, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23643382, ECO:0000269 PubMed:25077900}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting distinct genetic loci, including the gene represented in this entry. The genetics of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism involves various modes of transmission. Oligogenic inheritance has been reported in some patients carrying mutations in TACR3 as well as in other HH-associated genes including FGFR1, SPRY4 and KAL1 (PubMed:23643382). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23643382}.
