機能Unknown. This retinoic acid-inducible G-protein coupled receptor provide evidence for a possible interaction between retinoid and G-protein signaling pathways.
組織特異性Expression is high in kidney, pancreas, and testis, medium in brain, heart, prostate, small intestine, and spleen, low in liver, placenta, skeletal muscle, colon, ovary, and thymus, and not detectable in lung and peripheral leukocyte. According to PubMed:10945465, highly expressed in most brain areas examined, with the highest levels observed in corpus callosum, caudate nucleus, putamen, substantia nigra, thalamus, hippocampus, and spinal chord as well as in dorsal root ganglia (DRG). In the periphery, expression levels are relatively low, compared to the CNS, with the strongest expression detected in pancreas, testis, uterus, and stomach.
配列類似性Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 3 family.
