Gene: Npy2r (neuropeptide Y receptor Y2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Npy2r
Name: neuropeptide Y receptor Y2
Description: Exhibits peptide YY receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including behavioral fear response; negative regulation of cell communication; and regulation of secretion. Localizes to integral component of plasma membrane. Used to study childhood absence epilepsy and mental depression. Biomarker of obesity. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Huntington's disease; morbid obesity; and obesity. Orthologous to human NPY2R (neuropeptide Y receptor Y2); INTERACTS WITH 1D-myo-inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate; ammonium chloride; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: LOC100360265; neuropeptide Y receptor type 2; neuropeptide Y receptor Y2-like; neuropeptide Y-Y2 receptor; neuropeptide Y/peptide YY-Y2 receptor
