Gene: ADRB2 (adrenoceptor beta 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ADRB2
Name: adrenoceptor beta 2
Description: Exhibits several functions, including amyloid-beta binding activity; beta2-adrenergic receptor activity; and norepinephrine binding activity. Involved in several processes, including activation of adenylate cyclase activity; positive regulation of cellular metabolic process; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to integral component of plasma membrane and receptor complex. Implicated in several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); kidney failure (multiple); lung disease (multiple); and open-angle glaucoma (multiple). Biomarker of cholangiocarcinoma; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; cystic fibrosis; and psoriasis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
