Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits growth hormone-releasing hormone receptor activity and peptide hormone binding activity. Involved in several processes, including gland development; positive regulation of growth hormone secretion; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to integral component of membrane and plasma membrane. Is expressed in alimentary system; brain; metanephros; and spinal cord. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in isolated growth hormone deficiency. Orthologous to human GHRHR (growth hormone releasing hormone receptor).
