Gene: Ednrb (endothelin receptor type B) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ednrb
Name: endothelin receptor type B
Description: Exhibits endothelin receptor activity and type 1 angiotensin receptor binding activity; involved in several processes, including aging, cGMP-mediated signaling, and regulation of blood vessel diameter; localizes to the membrane raft, nuclear membrane, and plasma membrane; used to study several diseases, including artery disease (multiple), lymphopenia, megacolon (multiple), portal hypertension, and sensorineural hearing loss; biomarker of asthma, hepatopulmonary syndrome, and hypertension; orthologous to human EDNRB (endothelin receptor type B); PARTICIPATES IN calcium/calmodulin dependent kinase signaling pathway; endothelin signaling pathway; inflammatory response pathway; INTERACTS WITH (R)-noradrenaline; (S)-colchicine; (S)-nicotine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: Ednra; endothelin B receptor; endothelin receptor; endothelin receptor non-selective type; endothelin-B receptor; ET-B; ET-BR; Etb
