Gene: P2RY6 (pyrimidinergic receptor P2Y6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: P2RY6
Name: pyrimidinergic receptor P2Y6
Description: Exhibits G protein-coupled ADP receptor activity; G protein-coupled UDP receptor activity; and G protein-coupled UTP receptor activity. Involved in cellular response to organonitrogen compound; positive regulation of phosphate metabolic process; and positive regulation of vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation. Predicted to localize to integral component of plasma membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: G-coupled nucleotide receptor; MGC15335; P2 purinoceptor; P2Y purinoceptor 6; P2Y6; P2Y6 receptor; pyrimidinergic receptor P2Y, G-protein coupled, 6
