P2RX5 purinergic receptor P2X 5

Gene ID: 5026, updated on 23-Nov-2021
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: P2X5; LRH-1; P2X5R


The product of this gene belongs to the family of purinoceptors for ATP. This receptor functions as a ligand-gated ion channel. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Read-through transcription also exists between this gene and the neighboring downstream gene, TAX1BP3 (Tax1 binding protein 3). [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011]
