Renin receptor-like (IPR012493)

Short name: Renin_rcpt

Family relationships



The sequences featured in this family are similar to a region of the human renin receptor (Q8NG15) that bears a putative transmembrane spanning segment [PMID: 12045255]. The renin receptor is involved in intracellular signal transduction by the activation of the ERK1/ERK2 pathway, and it also serves to increase the efficiency of angiotensinogen cleavage by receptor-bound renin, therefore facilitating angiotensin II generation and action on a cell surface [PMID: 12045255].
