Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have neuropeptide receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including positive regulation of ERK1 and ERK2 cascade; positive regulation of release of sequestered calcium ion into cytosol; and righting reflex. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm and integral component of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma; inflammatory bowel disease; newborn respiratory distress syndrome; and rheumatoid arthritis. Orthologous to human NPSR1 (neuropeptide S receptor 1).
