Neuronal pentraxin receptor

The protein encoded by this gene is an integral membrane protein, and functions as a neuronal receptor. It is thought to mediate neuronal uptake of the snake venom toxin, taipoxin, and its transport into the synapses. Studies in rat indicate that translation of this mRNA initiates at a non-AUG (CUG) codon. This site is also conserved in human and mouse. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Wu et al., Fribourg, Switzerland. In Am J Physiol Renal Physiol, Jun 2015
In the kidney, ANP binds to the natriuretic peptide receptor-A (NPR-A) and enhances its guanylyl cyclase activity, thereby increasing intracellular cyclic guanosine monophosphate production to promote natriuretic and renoprotective responses.
