Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Exhibits thromboxane receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of smooth muscle contraction; regulation of vasoconstriction; and response to lipopolysaccharide. Predicted to localize to acrosomal vesicle; nuclear speck; and plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system gland; and liver and biliary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma and blood platelet disease. Orthologous to human TBXA2R (thromboxane A2 receptor).
