Summaries for HTR2B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HTR2B Gene

  • This gene encodes one of the several different receptors for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) that belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. Serotonin is a biogenic hormone that functions as a neurotransmitter, a hormone, and a mitogen. Serotonin receptors mediate many of the central and peripheral physiologic functions of serotonin, including regulation of cardiovascular functions and impulsive behavior. Population and family-based analyses of a minor allele (glutamine-to-stop substitution, designated Q20*) which blocks expression of this protein, and knockout studies in mice, suggest a role for this gene in impulsivity. However, other factors, such as elevated testosterone levels, may also be involved. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2016]

GeneCards Summary for HTR2B Gene

HTR2B (5-Hydroxytryptamine Receptor 2B) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HTR2B include Heart Valve Disease and Ocular Hypotension. Among its related pathways are RET signaling and Signaling by GPCR. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G protein-coupled receptor activity and drug binding. An important paralog of this gene is HTR2A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for HTR2B Gene

  • G-protein coupled receptor for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) (PubMed:8143856, PubMed:7926008, PubMed:8078486, PubMed:8882600, PubMed:18703043, PubMed:23519210). Also functions as a receptor for various ergot alkaloid derivatives and psychoactive substances (PubMed:8143856, PubMed:7926008, PubMed:8078486, PubMed:12970106, PubMed:18703043, PubMed:23519210, PubMed:23519215, PubMed:24357322, PubMed:28129538). Ligand binding causes a conformation change that triggers signaling via guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins) and modulates the activity of down-stream effectors (PubMed:8143856, PubMed:8078486, PubMed:8882600, PubMed:23519215, PubMed:28129538). Beta-arrestin family members inhibit signaling via G proteins and mediate activation of alternative signaling pathways (PubMed:23519215, PubMed:28129538). Signaling activates a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system that modulates the activity of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase and down-stream signaling cascades and promotes the release of Ca(2+) ions from intracellular stores (PubMed:8143856, PubMed:8078486, PubMed:8882600, PubMed:18703043, PubMed:23519215, PubMed:28129538). Plays a role in the regulation of dopamine and 5-hydroxytryptamine release, 5-hydroxytryptamine uptake and in the regulation of extracellular dopamine and 5-hydroxytryptamine levels, and thereby affects neural activity. May play a role in the perception of pain (By similarity). Plays a role in the regulation of behavior, including impulsive behavior (PubMed:21179162). Required for normal proliferation of embryonic cardiac myocytes and normal heart development. Protects cardiomyocytes against apoptosis. Plays a role in the adaptation of pulmonary arteries to chronic hypoxia. Plays a role in vasoconstriction. Required for normal osteoblast function and proliferation, and for maintaining normal bone density. Required for normal proliferation of the interstitial cells of Cajal in the intestine (By similarity).

Tocris Summary for HTR2B Gene

  • Serotonin 5-HT2B receptors, previously known as 5-HT2F receptors, are located primarily in the stomach fundus, uterus, vascular endothelial and vascular and GI smooth muscle, with limited distribution in the brain. 5-HT2B overexpression leads to ventricular hypertrophy.

Variants for HTR2B Gene

Polymorphic Variants from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HTR2B Gene

5HT2B_HUMAN-P41595
A variation at a single nucleotide base, which results in an erroneous stop codon and affects Gln-20, triggers non-sense mediated RNA decay, such that no HTR2B-receptor protein is expressed. It is associated with impulsive behavior and co-segregates with disorders characterized by impulsivity. However, the presence of this variant is not in itself sufficient to cause impulsive behavior: male sex, testosterone level, alcohol and stress exposure are other factors playing important roles.
