Gene: Tas1r2 (taste 1 receptor member 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Tas1r2
Name: taste 1 receptor member 2
Description: Exhibits taste receptor activity. Predicted to contribute to sweet taste receptor activity. Involved in sensory perception of sweet taste. Predicted to localize to the integral component of plasma membrane and sweet taste receptor complex; INTERACTS WITH 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)ethane; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3',5'-cyclic AMP.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
