Previous GeneCards Identifiers for TRHR Gene
This gene encodes a G protein-coupled receptor for thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH). Upon binding to TRH, this receptor activates the inositol phospholipid-calcium-protein kinase C transduction pathway. Mutations in this gene have been associated with generalized thyrotropin-releasing hormone resistance. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]
GeneCards Summary for TRHR Gene
TRHR (Thyrotropin Releasing Hormone Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TRHR include resistance to thyrotropin-releasing hormone syndrome and hypothyroidism. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Interleukin-3, 5 and GM-CSF signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and thyrotropin-releasing hormone receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is GPR39.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRHR Gene
Receptor for thyrotropin-releasing hormone. This receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system.
Thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) receptors are Gq/11-protein-coupled receptors that promote thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and prolactin (PRL) release. Two TRH receptor subtypes, TRH1 and TRH2, have been identified in rats but only TRH1 has been found in humans.
