NCBI Summary for HTR2C
This gene encodes a seven-transmembrane G-protein-coupled receptor. The encoded protein responds to signaling through the neurotransmitter serotonin. The mRNA of this gene is subject to multiple RNA editing events, where adenosine residues encoded by the genome are converted to inosines. RNA editing is predicted to alter the structure of the second intracellular loop, thereby generating alternate protein forms with decreased ability to interact with G proteins. Abnormalities in RNA editing of this gene have been detected in victims of suicide that suffer from depression. In addition, naturally-occuring variation in the promoter and 5' non-coding and coding regions of this gene may show statistically-significant association with mental illness and behavioral disorders. Alternative splicing results in multiple different transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2015]
UniProt Comments for HTR2C
5-HT(2C): a G-protein coupled receptor. One of several different receptors for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin), a biogenic hormone that functions as a neurotransmitter, a hormone, and a mitogen. Mediates its action by activating a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system.

Protein type: GPCR, family 1; Membrane protein, multi-pass; Membrane protein, integral; Receptor, GPCR

Chromosomal Location of Human Ortholog: Xq24

Cellular Component: cytosol; integral to plasma membrane; plasma membrane

Molecular Function: 5-HT2 receptor activity; drug binding; serotonin binding; serotonin receptor activity

Biological Process: behavioral fear response; cellular calcium ion homeostasis; cGMP biosynthetic process; elevation of cytosolic calcium ion concentration during G-protein signaling, coupled to IP3 second messenger (phospholipase C activating); feeding behavior; G-protein signaling, coupled to IP3 second messenger (phospholipase C activating); locomotory behavior; positive regulation of fat cell differentiation; positive regulation of phosphatidylinositol biosynthetic process; regulation of appetite; regulation of corticotropin-releasing hormone secretion; regulation of neurological process; release of sequestered calcium ion into cytosol; response to drug; serotonin receptor signaling pathway; serotonin receptor, phospholipase C activating pathway; synaptic transmission
