Gene: CALCB (calcitonin related polypeptide beta) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CALCB
Name: calcitonin related polypeptide beta
Description: Predicted to have calcitonin receptor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in adenylate cyclase-activating G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway and regulation of cytosolic calcium ion concentration. Predicted to localize to extracellular space; INTERACTS WITH all-trans-retinoic acid; arsenite(3-); capsaicin.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: beta-CGRP; beta-type CGRP; CALC2; calcitonin 2; calcitonin gene-related peptide 2; calcitonin gene-related peptide II; calcitonin-related polypeptide beta; calcitonin-related polypeptide, beta; CGRP-II; CGRP2; FLJ30166
