cholecystokinin B receptor

Gene Summary

Cholecystokinin was one of the first gastrointestinal peptides discovered in the mammalian brain. Cholecystokinin receptors are members of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily, stimulating phosphatidylinositol turnover and intracellular calcium mobilization. This gene encodes a cholecystokinin receptor of the B subtype. These receptors occur throughout the central nervous system where they modulate anxiety, analgesia, arousal, and neuroleptic activity.
