Gene: Agtr2 (angiotensin II receptor, type 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Agtr2
Name: angiotensin II receptor, type 2
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits peptide hormone binding; transcription factor binding; angiotensin type II receptor activity (ortholog); INVOLVED IN aldosterone secretion; cell growth involved in cardiac muscle cell development; cellular response to dexamethasone stimulus; PARTICIPATES IN angiotensin III signaling pathway via AT2 receptor; angiotensin II signaling pathway via AT2 receptor; G protein mediated signaling pathway via Galphai family; ASSOCIATED WITH cardiac hypertrophy; ASSOCIATED WITH Asthma; asthma; Cardiomyopathy, Dilated; FOUND IN perinuclear region of cytoplasm; plasma membrane; INTERACTS WITH (S)-nicotine; 17beta-estradiol; 3',5'-cyclic GMP
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: angiotensin II type 2 receptor; angiotensin II type-2 receptor; Angiotensin receptor 2; AT2; AT2-R; AT2R; AT2R; type-2 angiotensin II receptor
