    Adenosine Receptor A2a Summary & Protein Information

    Adenosine Receptor A2a Background

    Subunit structure: Interacts (via cytoplasmic C-terminal domain) with USP4; the interaction is direct. May interact with DRD4. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:16339847, ECO:0000269|PubMed:18832607}.
    Domain: The cytoplasmic C-terminal domain is necessary for targeting the non-ubiquitinated form of this protein to the cell surface.
    Subcellular location: Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
    Post-translational: Ubiquitinated. Deubiquitinated by USP4; leading to stabilization and expression at the cell surface. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:16339847}.
    Sequence similarity: Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. {ECO:0000255|PROSITE-ProRule:PRU00521}.
    General information above from UniProt

    This gene encodes a member of the guanine nucleotide-binding protein (G protein)-coupled receptor (GPCR) superfamily, which is subdivided into classes and subtypes. The receptors are seven-pass transmembrane proteins that respond to extracellular cues and activate intracellular signal transduction pathways. This protein, an adenosine receptor of A2A subtype, uses adenosine as the preferred endogenous agonist and preferentially interacts with the G(s) and G(olf) family of G proteins to increase intracellular cAMP levels. It plays an important role in many biological functions, such as cardiac rhythm and circulation, cerebral and renal blood flow, immune function, pain regulation, and sleep. It has been implicated in pathophysiological conditions such as inflammatory diseases and neurodegenerative disorders. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. A read-through transcript composed of the upstream SPECC1L (sperm antigen with calponin homology and coiled-coil domains 1-like) and ADORA2A (adenosine A2a receptor) gene sequence has been identified, but it is thought to be non-coding.
