Official Full Name
prostaglandin D2 receptor (DP)
Background
The protein encoded by this gene is a G-protein-coupled receptor. It has been shown to function as a prostanoid DP receptor. The activity of this receptor is mainly mediated by G-S proteins that stimulate adenylate cyclase resulting in an elevation of intracellular cAMP and Ca2+.Knockout studies in mice suggest that the ligand of this receptor,prostaglandin D2 (PGD2), functions as a mast cell-derived mediator to trigger asthmatic responses.
