Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have angiotensin type I receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including blood vessel development; drinking behavior; and regulation of systemic arterial blood pressure by circulatory renin-angiotensin. Predicted to localize to the plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Alzheimer's disease; artery disease (multiple); cerebrovascular disease (multiple); chronic kidney disease; and sarcoidosis. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; genitourinary system; heart; liver; and lung. Orthologous to human AGTR1 (angiotensin II receptor type 1).
