The product of this gene belongs to the family of G-protein coupled receptors. This family has several receptor subtypes with different pharmacological selectivity, which overlaps in some cases, for various adenosine and uridine nucleotides. This receptor is activated by ADP.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for P2RY13 Gene
Receptor for ADP. Coupled to G(i)-proteins. May play a role in hematopoiesis and the immune system.
P2Y receptors are G-protein-coupled receptors that respond to extracellular purine and pyrimidine nucleotides. To date, eight mammalian P2Y receptors are known (P2Y1, P2Y2, P2Y4, P2Y6, P2Y11-14) as well as the non-mammalian p2y3, p2y8 and p2y receptors.
