Previous GeneCards Identifiers for FPR1 Gene
This gene encodes a G protein-coupled receptor of mammalian phagocytic cells that is a member of the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. The protein mediates the response of phagocytic cells to invasion of the host by microorganisms and is important in host defense and inflammation.[provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010]
GeneCards Summary for FPR1 Gene
FPR1 (Formyl Peptide Receptor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FPR1 include aggressive periodontitis and specific bursitis often of occupational origin. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Ras signaling pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and RAGE receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is FPR2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FPR1 Gene
High affinity receptor for N-formyl-methionyl peptides (fMLP), which are powerful neutrophil chemotactic factors (PubMed:2161213, PubMed:2176894, PubMed:10514456, PubMed:15153520). Binding of fMLP to the receptor stimulates intracellular calcium mobilization and superoxide anion release (PubMed:2161213, PubMed:1712023, PubMed:15153520). This response is mediated via a G-protein that activates a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system (PubMed:1712023, PubMed:10514456).
The formyl peptide receptor family, FPR1, FPR2 and FPR3 (formerly FPR, FPRL1 and FPRL2 respectively) are Gi-protein-coupled receptors that are expressed mainly by mammalian phagocytic leukocytes. FPRs are involved in antibacterial host defence and inflammation.
