Gene: Calcr (calcitonin receptor) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Calcr
Name: calcitonin receptor
RGD ID: 621001
Description: Exhibits calcitonin binding activity and calcitonin receptor activity. Predicted to contribute to amylin receptor activity. Involved in adenylate cyclase-modulating G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway. Localizes to axon and neuronal cell body. Used to study brain disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in osteoporosis. Orthologous to human CALCR (calcitonin receptor); INTERACTS WITH ammonium chloride; amphetamine; benzo[a]pyrene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
