Western blot analysis of HCRTR2 over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with HCRTR2 Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00003062-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with HCRTR2 monoclonal antibody (M01), clone 1E3 (Cat # H00003062-M01 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
The protein encoded by this gene is a G-protein coupled receptor involved in the regulation of feeding behavior. The encoded protein binds the hypothalamic neuropeptides orexin A and orexin B. A related gene (HCRTR1) encodes a G-protein coupled receptor that selectively binds orexin A. [provided by RefSeq
