Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SCTR Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a G protein-coupled receptor and belongs to the glucagon-VIP-secretin receptor family. It binds secretin which is the most potent regulator of pancreatic bicarbonate, electrolyte and volume secretion. Secretin and its receptor are suggested to be involved in pancreatic cancer and autism. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SCTR Gene
This is a receptor for secretin. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylyl cyclase.
Secretin receptors are members of the glucagon receptor family that also includes glucagon, GLP-1, GLP-2, GHRH and GIP receptors. Secretin receptors are classically localized to the epithelial cells within the pancreatic and biliary ducts, where they bind to the hormone secretin.
