Gene: Avpr2 (arginine vasopressin receptor 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Avpr2
Name: arginine vasopressin receptor 2
Description: Predicted to have vasopressin receptor activity. Involved in I-kappaB kinase/NF-kappaB signaling; interferon-gamma production; and response to cytokine. Predicted to localize to the integral component of plasma membrane. Used to study nephrogenic diabetes insipidus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in nephrogenic diabetes insipidus. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; forelimb bud; heart; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human AVPR2 (arginine vasopressin receptor 2).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
