Summaries for GHR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GHR Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the type I cytokine receptor family, which is a transmembrane receptor for growth hormone. Binding of growth hormone to the receptor leads to receptor dimerization and the activation of an intra- and intercellular signal transduction pathway leading to growth. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Laron syndrome, also known as the growth hormone insensitivity syndrome (GHIS), a disorder characterized by short stature. In humans and rabbits, but not rodents, growth hormone binding protein (GHBP) is generated by proteolytic cleavage of the extracellular ligand-binding domain from the mature growth hormone receptor protein. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Jun 2011]

GeneCards Summary for GHR Gene

GHR (Growth Hormone Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GHR include Laron Syndrome and Growth Hormone Insensitivity, Partial. Among its related pathways are TGF-Beta Pathway and Peptide ligand-binding receptors. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and protein phosphatase binding. An important paralog of this gene is PRLR.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GHR Gene

  • Receptor for pituitary gland growth hormone involved in regulating postnatal body growth. On ligand binding, couples to the JAK2/STAT5 pathway (By similarity).

  • The soluble form (GHBP) acts as a reservoir of growth hormone in plasma and may be a modulator/inhibitor of GH signaling.

  • Isoform 2 up-regulates the production of GHBP and acts as a negative inhibitor of GH signaling.

neXtProt entry for GHR Gene

Post-translational modifications for GHR Gene

  • The soluble form (GHBP) is produced by phorbol ester-promoted proteolytic cleavage at the cell surface (shedding) by ADAM17/TACE. Shedding is inhibited by growth hormone (GH) binding to the receptor probably due to a conformational change in GHR rendering the receptor inaccessible to ADAM17 (By similarity).
  • On GH binding, phosphorylated on tyrosine residues in the cytoplasmic domain by JAK2.
  • On ligand binding, ubiquitinated on lysine residues in the cytoplasmic domain. This ubiquitination is not sufficient for GHR internalization (By similarity).
  • Glycosylation at Asn200, isoforms=2, 3, 4161, isoforms=2, 3, 4156, isoforms=2, 3, 4115, and isoforms=2, 346
