Min / Max
|Non-lineage Restricted Molecule|
|EDG2 expression is in many adult organs including brain, heart, colon, small intestine, placenta, prostate, ovary, pancreas, testes, spleen, skeletal muscle and kidney. Little or no expression is in liver, lung, thymus or peripheral blood leukocytes.|
|MOLECULAR FAMILY NAME: Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor family.|
EDG2 is a multi-pass 364 aa glycoprotein. It contains an extracellular domain, 7 transmembrane domains and a cytoplasmic domain.
Alternative splicing yields 2 different isoforms. The isoforms encodes identical proteins.
An alternate translation start codon has been identified, which results in isoforms differing in the N-terminal extracellular domain. Also an alternate polyadenylation site has been reported.
|LIGANDS AND MOLECULES ASSOCIATE WITH EDG2: No information.|
EDG2 is a lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) receptor and a member of the G protein coupled receptor superfamily.
