Summary: (from NCBI-Entrez) ..[read more]This gene encodes a member of the lysophosphatidic acid receptor family. It may also be related to the P2Y receptors, a family of receptors that bind purine and pyrimidine nucleotides and are coupled to G proteins. The encoded protein may play a role in m
Noguchi K, et al. (J Biol Chem, 2003) identified p2y9/GPR23 as a novel G protein-coupled receptor for lysophosphatidic acid, which is produced by LIPH, a phosphatidic acid-selective phospholipase A1 (PLA1).
