Official Full Name
lysophosphatidic acid receptor 1
The integral membrane protein encoded by this gene is a lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) receptor from a group known as EDG;receptors. These receptors are members of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily. Utilized by LPA for cell;signaling, EDG receptors mediate diverse biologic functions, including proliferation, platelet aggregation, smooth;muscle contraction, inhibition of neuroblastoma cell differentiation, chemotaxis, and tumor cell invasion. Two;transcript variants encoding the same protein have been identified for this gene.
