Gene: GALR2 (galanin receptor 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GALR2
Name: galanin receptor 2
Description: Exhibits galanin receptor activity and peptide hormone binding activity. Involved in G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of large conductance calcium-activated potassium channel activity; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the cilium.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: GAL2-R; galanin receptor type 2; GALNR2; GALR-2; MGC125983; MGC125984
