Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have V1A vasopressin receptor binding activity; peptide hormone binding activity; and vasopressin receptor activity. Involved in regulation of systemic arterial blood pressure by vasopressin. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasmic vesicle and integral component of plasma membrane. Used to study schizophrenia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypertension. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; eye; genitourinary system; and immune system. Orthologous to human AVPR1A (arginine vasopressin receptor 1A).
