MAS1 proto-oncogene, G protein-coupled receptor

ENTREZID: 4142 | Type: NA | Map: 6q25.3

OMIM: 300335

Summary Entrez
This gene encodes a class I seven-transmembrane G-protein-coupled receptor. The encoded protein is a receptor for angiotensin-(1-7) and preferentially couples to the Gq protein, activating the phospholipase C signaling pathway. The encoded protein may play a role in multiple processes including hypotension, smooth muscle relaxation and cardioprotection by mediating the effects of angiotensin-(1-7).
