Gene: ADIPOR2 (adiponectin receptor 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ADIPOR2
Name: adiponectin receptor 2
Description: The adiponectin receptors, ADIPOR1 (MIM 607945) and ADIPOR2, serve as receptors for globular and full-length adiponectin (MIM 605441) and mediate increased AMPK (see MIM 602739) and PPAR-alpha (PPARA; MIM 170998) ligand activities, as well as fatty acid oxidation and glucose uptake by adiponectin (Yamauchi et al., 2003 [PubMed 12802337]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: ACDCR2; adiponectin receptor protein 2; FLJ21432; MGC4640; OTTHUMP00000160634; PAQR2; progestin and adipoQ receptor family member 2; progestin and adipoQ receptor family member II
