Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits growth hormone-releasing hormone receptor activity and peptide hormone binding activity. Involved in several processes, including gland development; positive regulation of growth; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to the integral component of membrane and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in isolated growth hormone deficiency. Is expressed in alimentary system; brain; metanephros; and spinal cord. Orthologous to human GHRHR (growth hormone releasing hormone receptor).
