Summaries for NMBR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NMBR Gene

  • This gene encodes a 7-transmembrane G protein-coupled receptor that binds neuromedin B, which is a growth factor and mitogen for gastrointestinal epithelial tissue and for normal and neoplastic lung. This receptor may play a role in smooth muscle contraction, neuronal responses, and the regulation of cell growth. Antagonists of this receptor have a potential therapeutic use in inhibiting tumor cell growth. Polymorphisms in this gene may be associated with a susceptibility for schizophrenia. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2016]

GeneCards Summary for NMBR Gene

NMBR (Neuromedin B Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NMBR include Lung Cancer and Small Cell Cancer Of The Lung. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Peptide ligand-binding receptors. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and bombesin receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is GRPR.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NMBR Gene

  • Receptor for neuromedin-B.

Tocris Summary for NMBR Gene

  • Bombesin receptors are activated by the endogenous ligands gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP), neuromedin B (NMB) and GRP18-27 (neuromedin C). Three subtypes of bombesin receptor are known: BB1, BB2 and an orphan receptor (bb3).
