Gene: Ghsr (growth hormone secretagogue receptor) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ghsr
Name: growth hormone secretagogue receptor
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits growth hormone secretagogue receptor activity; hormone binding; peptide hormone binding; INVOLVED IN cellular response to insulin-like growth factor stimulus; cellular response to lipopolysaccharide; cellular response to thyroid hormone stimulus; PARTICIPATES IN G protein mediated signaling pathway via Galphaq family; ghrelin system pathway; ASSOCIATED WITH decreased body length; decreased body weight; decreased circulating leptin level; ASSOCIATED WITH Cardiac Fibrosis; Diabetes Mellitus, Experimental ; Fetal Growth Retardation; FOUND IN glutamatergic synapse; integral component of synaptic membrane; plasma membrane; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,5-hexanedione; ammonium chloride
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: GH-releasing peptide receptor; ghrelin receptor; GHRP; GHS-R; growth hormone secretagogue receptor type 1
