Accession Number
Alias Names
G protein-coupled receptor 8; G-protein coupled receptor 8; GPR8; neuropeptides B/W receptor 2; neuropeptides B/W receptor type 2; opioid-somatostatin-like receptor 8
The protein encoded by this gene is an integral membrane protein and G protein-coupled receptor. The encoded protein is similar in sequence to another G protein-coupled receptor (GPR7), and it is structurally similar to opioid and somatostatin receptors. This protein binds neuropeptides B and W. This gene is intronless and is expressed primarily in the frontal cortex of the brain. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
