Gene: Avpr2 (arginine vasopressin receptor 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Avpr2
Name: arginine vasopressin receptor 2
RGD ID: 2186
Description: Predicted to enable peptide binding activity and vasopressin receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of urine volume; positive regulation of systemic arterial blood pressure; and telencephalon development. Predicted to be located in endocytic vesicle; endosome; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Predicted to be active in plasma membrane. Used to study hypertension. Biomarker of ureteral obstruction. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in X-linked nephrogenic diabetes insipidus; nephrogenic diabetes insipidus; and nephrogenic syndrome of inappropriate antidiuresis. Orthologous to human AVPR2 (arginine vasopressin receptor 2); PARTICIPATES IN vasopressin signaling pathway; vasopressin signaling pathway via receptor type 2; G protein mediated signaling pathway via Galphas family; INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; ammonium chloride; bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: antidiuretic hormone receptor; AVPR V2; renal-type arginine vasopressin receptor; V2R; vasopressin receptor V2; vasopressin V2 receptor

RGD Curation Notes
Note Type Note Reference
gene_disease chronic stimulation of vasopressin V2 receptor raises basal blood pressure and leads to DOCA-salt hypertension, organ damage, and mortality 1298694
gene_drugs 1-desamino-8-D-argnine vasopressin (dDAVP), an agonist to the receptor, results in significant rise in renal medullary interstitial NO 628575
gene_expression predominantly in the kidney distal convoluted tubule and collecting ducts and in fetal lung tissue 61489
gene_process couples to G-protein thus stimulating adenylate cyclase 61489
gene_process involved in concentrating urine and maintaining water homeostasis  
gene_process may promote the arginine vassopressin(Avp)-mediated blood flow into renal medulla by increasing renall medullary interstitial nitric oxide (NO) 628575
gene_transcript contains three exons and two introns, 2.1 kb 61489
gene_transcript consists of two alternatively spliced forms, long (V2L) form encodes the adenylyl cyclase-coupled receptor and short form lacks putative seventh transmembrane domain 1298557
