LGR6 leucine rich repeat containing G protein-coupled receptor 6

Gene ID: 59352, updated on 21-Oct-2018
Also known as: GPCR; VTS20631

Summary

This gene encodes a member of the leucine-rich repeat-containing subgroup of the G protein-coupled 7-transmembrane protein superfamily. The encoded protein is a glycoprotein hormone receptor with a large N-terminal extracellular domain that contains leucine-rich repeats important for the formation of a horseshoe-shaped interaction motif for ligand binding. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
