|Function||Receptor for prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) (PubMed:8307176, PubMed:7883006, PubMed:8117308, PubMed:8135729, PubMed:7981210). The activity of this receptor can couple to both the inhibition of adenylate cyclase mediated by G(i) proteins, and to an elevation of intracellular calcium (PubMed:7883006, PubMed:8117308, PubMed:8135729, PubMed:7981210). Required for normal development of fever in response to pyrinogens, including IL1B, prostaglandin E2 and bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Required for normal potentiation of platelet aggregation by prostaglandin E2, and thus plays a role in the regulation of blood coagulation. Required for increased HCO3(-) secretion in the duodenum in response to mucosal acidification, and thereby contributes to the protection of the mucosa against acid-induced ulceration. Not required for normal kidney function, normal urine volume and osmolality (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Detected in kidney (PubMed:8117308, PubMed:8135729). Expressed in small intestine, heart, pancreas, gastric fundic mucosa, mammary artery and pulmonary vessels|

Receptor for prostaglandin E2 (PGE2); the EP3 receptor may be involved in inhibition of gastric acid secretion, modulation of neurotransmitter release in central and peripheral neurons, inhibition of sodium and water reabsorption in kidney tubulus and contraction in uterine smooth muscle. The activity of this receptor can couple to both the inhibition of adenylate cyclase mediated by G-I proteins, and to an elevation of intracellular calcium. The various isoforms have identical ligand binding properties but can interact with different second messenger systems (By similarity).
