GeneCards Summary for NPS Gene

NPS (Neuropeptide S) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NPS include Spinocerebellar Ataxia 23 and Anxiety. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and Circadian rythm related genes.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NPS Gene

  • Modulates arousal and anxiety. May play an important anorexigenic role (By similarity). Binds to its receptor NPSR1 with nanomolar affinity to increase intracellular calcium concentrations (PubMed:15312648, PubMed:16790440).
