Gene: Galr2 (galanin receptor 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Galr2
Name: galanin receptor 2
Description: Exhibits galanin receptor activity and neuropeptide binding activity. Involved in several processes, including adenylate cyclase-activating G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; inositol phosphate metabolic process; and positive regulation of cytosolic calcium ion concentration. Localizes to plasma membrane. Orthologous to human GALR2 (galanin receptor 2); INTERACTS WITH 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: GAL2-R; galanin receptor type 2; GALR-2

Latest Assembly: Rnor_6.0 - RGSC Genome Assembly v6.0
NCBI Annotation Information: Note: In Rnor_6.0 (AR 105), the loci 29234 and 103690156 are placed twice on chromosome 10. This is likely an assembly error and not a true gene duplication. [28 May 2015]
