GeneCards Summary for NPFFR1 Gene
NPFFR1 (Neuropeptide FF Receptor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and RET signaling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G protein-coupled receptor activity and neuropeptide receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is NPFFR2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for NPFFR1 Gene
Receptor for NPAF (A-18-F-amide) and NPFF (F-8-F-amide) neuropeptides, also known as morphine-modulating peptides. Can also be activated by a variety of naturally occurring or synthetic FMRF-amide like ligands. This receptor mediates its action by association with G proteins that activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system.
Neuropeptide FF/AF (NPFF) receptors are a group of Gi/Go-protein-coupled receptors that are divided into two subtypes; NPFF1 and NPFF2. NPFF receptors have been implicated in hormonal modulation, regulation of food intake, thermoregulation and nociception.
