Gene: Ptger3 (prostaglandin E receptor 3) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ptger3
Name: prostaglandin E receptor 3
Description: Exhibits prostaglandin E receptor activity; involved in several processes, including cellular response to lipid, negative regulation of transport, and regulation of signal transduction; localizes to several cellular components, including the brush border membrane, cell surface, and neuronal cell body; used to study asthma and withdrawal disorder; biomarker of colon cancer, membranous glomerulonephritis, and renovascular hypertension; orthologous to human PTGER3 (prostaglandin E receptor 3); PARTICIPATES IN calcium/calcium-mediated signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: EP3; EP3R; PGE receptor EP3 subtype; PGE receptor, EP3 subtype; PGE2 receptor EP3 subtype; prostaglandin E receptor 3 ( subtype EP3); prostaglandin E receptor 3 (subtype EP3); prostaglandin E2 receptor EP3 subtype; prostanoid EP3 receptor; rat kidney prostaglandin Ep3 receptor; Rat kidney prostaglandin EP3 receptor (alternative splicing results in two different receptors EP3a and EP3b); Rep3; rEP3a; rEP3b
