Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits guanylate cyclase activity; identical protein binding activity; and natriuretic peptide receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including bone development; negative regulation of meiotic cell cycle; and negative regulation of oocyte maturation. Predicted to localize to the integral component of plasma membrane. Used to study achondroplasia; acromesomelic dysplasia, Maroteaux type; and bone development disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Miura type epiphyseal chondrodysplasia; acromesomelic dysplasia, Maroteaux type; and essential hypertension. Orthologous to human NPR2 (natriuretic peptide receptor 2).
