GeneCards Summary for NPY2R Gene
NPY2R (Neuropeptide Y Receptor Y2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NPY2R include Cocaine Dependence and Nephronophthisis 4. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Sympathetic Nerve Pathway (Neuroeffector Junction). Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G protein-coupled receptor activity and calcium channel regulator activity. An important paralog of this gene is PRLHR.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for NPY2R Gene
Receptor for neuropeptide Y and peptide YY. The rank order of affinity of this receptor for pancreatic polypeptides is PYY > NPY > PYY (3-36) > NPY (2-36) > [Ile-31, Gln-34] PP > [Leu-31, Pro-34] NPY > PP, [Pro-34] PYY and NPY free acid.
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) receptors are a family of Gi/o-protein-coupled receptors that are currently divided into four subtypes: Y1, Y2, Y4 and Y5. NPY receptors mediate a diverse range of biological actions including stimulation of food intake and modulation of circadian rhythm.
