|Other Names||Relaxin receptor 2, G-protein coupled receptor 106, G-protein coupled receptor affecting testicular descent, Leucine-rich repeat-containing G-protein coupled receptor 8, Relaxin family peptide receptor 2, RXFP2, GPR106, GREAT, LGR8|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||GPR106, GREAT, LGR8|
|Function||Receptor for relaxin. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins leading to stimulation of adenylate cyclase and an increase of cAMP. May also be a receptor for Leydig insulin-like peptide (INSL3).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed mainly in the brain, kidney, muscle, testis, thyroid, uterus, peripheral blood cells and bone marrow|
