Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0012116
UniProt IDP07550
Primary gene name(s)ADRB2
Synonym gene name(s)ADRB2R, B2AR
Protein nameBeta-2 adrenergic receptor
Protein functionBeta-adrenergic receptors mediate the catecholamine-induced activation of adenylate cyclase through the action of G proteins. The beta-2-adrenergic receptor binds epinephrine with an approximately 30-fold greater affinity than it does norepinephrine. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:2831218, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7915137}.
Subcellular locationCell membrane {ECO:0000269|PubMed:19584355, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20559325, ECO:0000269|PubMed:25220262, ECO:0000269|PubMed:2831218, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7915137};
Multi-pass membrane protein {ECO:0000269|PubMed:19584355}. Early endosome {ECO:0000269|PubMed:20559325}. Note=Colocalizes with VHL at the cell membrane, PubMed:19584355. Activated receptors are internalized into endosomes prior to their degradation in lysosomes, PubMed:20559325. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:19584355, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20559325}.
