Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.1)
Enables calcitonin receptor activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including adenylate cyclase-activating G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; negative regulation of ossification; and osteoclast differentiation. Located in acrosomal vesicle and cilium. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; 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).
