|EDG7 is expressed in prostate, testes, pancreas and heart and at moderate levels in lung and ovary. There is no detectable expression in brain, placenta, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney, spleen, thymus, small intesttine, colon or peripheral blood leukocytes.|
|MOLECULAR FAMILY NAME: Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor family.|
EDG7 is a mult-pass 353 aa glycoprotein. It contains an extracellular domain, a transmembrane domain and a cytoplasmic domain. EDG7 shares a 54% and 49% amino acid identity with EDG2 and EDG4 and less than 40% identity with EDG1.
POST-TRANSCRIPTIONAL MODIFICATION: No information.
POST-TRANSLATIONAL MODIFIFCATION: No information.
|LIGANDS AND MOLECULES ASSOCIATED WITH EDG7: No information.|
|EDG7 functions as a cellular receptor for lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) and mediates a diverse cellular activities and lysophosphatidic acid-envoked calcium mobilzation. This receptor couple is predominantly to G(q)/11 α proteins and families of heteromeric G proteins.|
