Gene: PLCB2 (phospholipase C beta 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PLCB2
Name: phospholipase C beta 2
Description: The protein encoded by this gene is a phosphodiesterase that catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate to the second messengers inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) and diacylglycerol. The encoded protein is activated by G proteins and has been shown to be involved in the type 2 taste receptor signal transduction pathway. In addition, nuclear factor kappa B can regulate the transcription of this gene, whose protein product is also an important regulator of platelet responses. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2017]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
