GeneCards Summary for UTS2R Gene
UTS2R (Urotensin 2 Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with UTS2R include pheochromocytoma and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 1. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Interleukin receptor SHC signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and urotensin II receptor activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for UTS2R Gene
High affinity receptor for urotensin-2 and urotensin-2B. The activity of this receptor is mediated by a G-protein that activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system.
The urotensin-II (UT) receptor is a Gq/11-protein-coupled receptor that mediates complex hemodynamic effects and influences neuromuscular physiology. The UT receptor displays greatest expression levels in the peripheral vasculature, heart and kidney.
