Gene: Ptger2 (prostaglandin E receptor 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ptger2
Name: prostaglandin E receptor 2
RGD ID: 620020
Description: Exhibits prostaglandin E receptor activity. Involved in positive regulation of gastric mucosal blood circulation. Predicted to localize to plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma, nasal polyps, and aspirin intolerance. Orthologous to human PTGER2 (prostaglandin E receptor 2); INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: EP2; LOC100360765; PGE receptor EP2 subtype; PGE receptor, EP2 subtype; PGE2 receptor EP2 subtype; prostaglandin E receptor 2 (subtype EP2); prostaglandin E receptor EP2 subtype; prostaglandin E2 receptor EP2 subtype; prostaglandin E2 receptor EP2 subtype-like; prostaglandin E2 receptor type 2; prostanoid EP2 receptor; Ptger-ep2
