|Other Names||Adiponectin receptor protein 2, Progestin and adipoQ receptor family member II, ADIPOR2, PAQR2|
|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.|
|Function||Receptor for ADIPOQ, an essential hormone secreted by adipocytes that regulates glucose and lipid metabolism (PubMed:12802337, PubMed:25855295). Required for normal body fat and glucose homeostasis. ADIPOQ-binding activates a signaling cascade that leads to increased PPARA activity, and ultimately to increased fatty acid oxidation and glucose uptake. Has intermediate affinity for globular and full-length adiponectin. Required for normal revascularization after chronic ischemia caused by severing of blood vessels (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein Note=Localized to the cell membrane and intracellular organelles|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous (PubMed:16044242). Highly expressed in skeletal muscle, liver and placenta (PubMed:12802337). Weakly expressed in brain, heart, colon, spleen, kidney, thymus, small intestine, peripheral blood leukocytes and lung (PubMed:12802337)|

The adiponectin receptors, ADIPOR1 (MIM 607945) and ADIPOR2, serve as receptors for globular and full-length adiponectin (MIM 605441) and mediate increased AMPK (see MIM 602739) and PPAR-alpha (PPARA; MIM 170998) ligand activities, as well as fatty acid oxidation and glucose uptake by adiponectin.
