Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits calcitonin receptor activity. Predicted to contribute to amylin receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including adenylate cyclase-activating G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; negative regulation of ossification; and osteoclast differentiation. Localizes to acrosomal vesicle and cilium. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; gonad; limb long bone; mammary gland primordium; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in osteoporosis. Orthologous to human CALCR (calcitonin receptor).
