Ednra

Official Full Name
endothelin receptor type A
Background
This gene encodes the receptor for endothelin-1, a peptide that plays a role in potent and long-lasting vasoconstriction. This receptor associates with guanine-nucleotide-binding (G) proteins, and this coupling activates a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. Polymorphisms in this gene have been linked to migraine headache resistance. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]
Synonyms
EDNRA; endothelin receptor type A; ETA; ET-A; ETAR; ETRA; ETA-R; hET-AR; endothelin-1 receptor; G protein-coupled receptor; endothelin receptor subtype A; endothelin-1-specific receptor; ETA, ET-A, ETAR, ETRA, ETA-R, hET-AR
