Gene: Chrm2 (cholinergic receptor, muscarinic 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Chrm2
Name: cholinergic receptor, muscarinic 2
CRRD ID: 620023
Description: Exhibits G protein-coupled acetylcholine receptor activity. Involved in G protein-coupled acetylcholine receptor signaling pathway and regulation of smooth muscle contraction. Localizes to several cellular components, including glutamatergic synapse; integral component of synaptic membrane; and symmetric synapse. Biomarker of mental depression. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Chagas disease; asthma; bipolar disorder; heroin dependence; and major depressive disorder. Orthologous to human CHRM2 (cholinergic receptor muscarinic 2); PARTICIPATES IN acebutolol pharmacodynamics pathway; acetylcholine signaling pathway via muscarinic acetylcholine receptors engaging G alphai protein family; adrenergic beta receptor agonist and beta-blocker pharmacodynamics pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
