Gene: AVPR2 (arginine vasopressin receptor 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AVPR2
Name: arginine vasopressin receptor 2
Description: Predicted to have vasopressin receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular response to hormone stimulus; positive regulation of vasoconstriction; and regulation of systemic arterial blood pressure by vasopressin. Predicted to localize to the integral component of plasma membrane. Implicated in nephrogenic diabetes insipidus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
