Summaries for FPR3 Gene

GeneCards Summary for FPR3 Gene

FPR3 (Formyl Peptide Receptor 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and fMLP Pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and N-formyl peptide receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is FPR2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FPR3 Gene

  • Low affinity receptor for N-formyl-methionyl peptides, which are powerful neutrophils chemotactic factors. Binding of FMLP to the receptor causes activation of neutrophils. This response is mediated via a G-protein that activates a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system.

Tocris Summary for FPR3 Gene

  • 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.
