adenosine A2a receptor

Gene Summary

Enables G protein-coupled adenosine receptor activity; alpha-actinin binding activity; and type 5 metabotropic glutamate receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; chemical synaptic transmission; and regulation of secretion. Located in several cellular components, including axolemma; postsynaptic density; and synaptic membrane. Is active in glutamatergic synapse. Is integral component of postsynaptic membrane and integral component of presynaptic membrane. Colocalizes with intermediate filament. Used to study lung disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma. Orthologous to human ADORA2A (adenosine A2a receptor). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
