This gene encodes a member of the leucine-rich repeat-containing subgroup of the G protein-coupled 7-transmembrane protein superfamily. The encoded protein is a glycoprotein hormone receptor with a large N-terminal extracellular domain that contains leucine-rich repeats important for the formation of a horseshoe-shaped interaction motif for ligand binding.

Summaries for LGR6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LGR6 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the leucine-rich repeat-containing subgroup of the G protein-coupled 7-transmembrane protein superfamily. The encoded protein is a glycoprotein hormone receptor with a large N-terminal extracellular domain that contains leucine-rich repeats important for the formation of a horseshoe-shaped interaction motif for ligand binding. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for LGR6 Gene

LGR6 (Leucine Rich Repeat Containing G Protein-Coupled Receptor 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LGR6 include Myxedema and Eccrine Acrospiroma. Among its related pathways are Wnt Signaling Pathways: beta-Catenin-dependent Wnt Signaling and GPCRs, Other. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G protein-coupled receptor activity and transmembrane signaling receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is LGR5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for LGR6 Gene

  • Receptor for R-spondins that potentiates the canonical Wnt signaling pathway and acts as a marker of multipotent stem cells in the epidermis. Upon binding to R-spondins (RSPO1, RSPO2, RSPO3 or RSPO4), associates with phosphorylated LRP6 and frizzled receptors that are activated by extracellular Wnt receptors, triggering the canonical Wnt signaling pathway to increase expression of target genes. In contrast to classical G-protein coupled receptors, does not activate heterotrimeric G-proteins to transduce the signal. May act as a tumor suppressor.
