Aliases:This biomarker is also known as:
- Endothelin Receptor Type B,
- Endothelin Receptor Non-Selective Type,
- Endothelin B Receptor,
From Entrez Gene: The protein encoded by this gene is a G protein-coupled receptor which activates a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. Its ligand, endothelin, consists of a family of three potent vasoactive peptides: ET1, ET2, and ET3. Studies suggest that the multigenic disorder, Hirschsprung disease type 2, is due to mutations in the endothelin receptor type B gene. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. (provided by RefSeq, Jan 2011)
