Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have protein homodimerization activity and thyrotropin-releasing hormone receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in phospholipase C-activating G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of cytosolic calcium ion concentration; and positive regulation of protein homodimerization activity. Predicted to localize to the cell surface. Used to study congenital hypothyroidism. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital hypothyroidism and hypertension. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; heart; sensory organ; and skeleton. Orthologous to human TRHR (thyrotropin releasing hormone receptor).
