Agtr2

Official Full Name
angiotensin II receptor, type 2
Background
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family, and functions as a receptor for angiotensin II. It is an intergral membrane protein that is highly expressed in fetus, but scantily in adult tissues, except brain, adrenal medulla, and atretic ovary. This receptor has been shown to mediate programmed cell death and this apoptotic function may play an important role in developmental biology and pathophysiology. Mutations in this gene are been associated with X-linked mental retardation.
Synonyms
AGTR2; angiotensin II receptor, type 2; angiotensin receptor 2; type-2 angiotensin II receptor; AT2; MRX88; angiotensin II type-2 receptor; ATGR2; zgc:113016
