Summaries for RAMP2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RAMP2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the RAMP family of single-transmembrane-domain proteins, called receptor (calcitonin) activity modifying proteins (RAMPs). RAMPs are type I transmembrane proteins with an extracellular N terminus and a cytoplasmic C terminus. RAMPs are required to transport calcitonin-receptor-like receptor (CRLR) to the plasma membrane. CRLR, a receptor with seven transmembrane domains, can function as either a calcitonin-gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptor or an adrenomedullin receptor, depending on which members of the RAMP family are expressed. In the presence of this (RAMP2) protein, CRLR functions as an adrenomedullin receptor. The RAMP2 protein is involved in core glycosylation and transportation of adrenomedullin receptor to the cell surface. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for RAMP2 Gene

RAMP2 (Receptor Activity Modifying Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RAMP2 include Pheochromocytoma. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and Presynaptic function of Kainate receptors. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein transporter activity and coreceptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is RAMP3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RAMP2 Gene

  • Transports the calcitonin gene-related peptide type 1 receptor (CALCRL) to the plasma membrane. Acts as a receptor for adrenomedullin (AM) together with CALCRL.

Tocris Summary for RAMP2 Gene

  • Calcitonin and related receptors are a family of G-protein-coupled receptors that comprises of eight subtypes; CT, AMY1, AMY2, AMY3, CALCR, CGRP, AM1 and AM2. The main function of CT receptors is to inhibit bone reabsorption and enhance calcium excretion by the kidneys.
