GeneCards Summary for UTS2R Gene

UTS2R (Urotensin 2 Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with UTS2R include Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 3 and Pheochromocytoma. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and Circadian rythm related genes. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and urotensin II receptor activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for UTS2R Gene

  • High affinity receptor for urotensin-2 and urotensin-2B. The activity of this receptor is mediated by a G-protein that activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system.

Tocris Summary for UTS2R Gene

  • The urotensin-II (UT) receptor is a Gq/11-protein-coupled receptor that mediates complex hemodynamic effects and influences neuromuscular physiology. The UT receptor displays greatest expression levels in the peripheral vasculature, heart and kidney.
