Gene: P2RY8 (P2Y receptor family member 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: P2RY8
Name: P2Y receptor family member 8
Description: The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the family of G-protein coupled receptors, that are preferentially activated by adenosine and uridine nucleotides. This gene is moderately expressed in undifferentiated HL60 cells, and is located on both chromosomes X and Y. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: G-protein coupled purinergic receptor P2Y8; MGC50878; P2Y purinoceptor 8; P2Y8; purinergic receptor P2Y, G-protein coupled, 8; purinergic receptor P2Y8
