Gene: Avpr1a (arginine vasopressin receptor 1A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Avpr1a
Name: arginine vasopressin receptor 1A
Description: Exhibits V1A vasopressin receptor binding activity; peptide hormone binding activity; and vasopressin receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular cation homeostasis; mating; and positive regulation of blood circulation. Localizes to cytoplasmic vesicle and plasma membrane. Used to study acute kidney failure; brain edema; and myocardial infarction. Biomarker of hypertension and renovascular hypertension. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypertension. Orthologous to human AVPR1A (arginine vasopressin receptor 1A); PARTICIPATES IN G protein mediated signaling pathway via Galphaq family; vasopressin signaling pathway; vasopressin signaling pathway via receptor type 1; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
