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 neuromedin U receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is NMUR2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for NMUR1 Gene
Receptor for the neuromedin-U and neuromedin-S neuropeptides.
Neuromedin U (NMU) receptors are a group of Gq/11-protein-coupled receptors that are currently divided into two subtypes: NMU1 and NMU2. The two subtypes have distinct tissue distributions: NMU1 is expressed in the periphery, whilst NMU2 is expressed in the CNS.
