ADGRA2 Information: ADGRA2 Protein, ADGRA2 Antibody and ADGRA2 Gene

ADGRA2 Gene family

ADGRA2 Protein

ADGRA2 protein function

Endothelial receptor which functions as a WNT7-specific coactivator of canonical Wnt signaling (By similarity). Required for normal endothelial cell sprouting and migration in the forebrain and neural tube (By similarity). Has a major role in establishing the blood-brain barrier (By similarity). Binds to the glycosaminoglycans heparin, heparin sulfate, chondroitin sulfate and dermatan sulfate (PubMed:16982628).

ADGRA2 protein expression

Tissue specificity

Expressed in endothelial cells (at protein level) (PubMed:15021905, PubMed:16982628). Abundantly expressed in heart, placenta, ovary, small intestine, and colon (PubMed:15021905).
