Calcitonin receptor Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

Calcitonin receptor cDNA / Gene Overview

CALCR gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 7q21.3. The CALCR gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, zebrafish, and frog.210 organisms have orthologs with human gene CALCR.

Calcitonin receptor cDNA / Gene Function

This gene encodes a high affinity receptor for the peptide hormone calcitonin and belongs to a subfamily of seven transmembrane-spanning G protein-coupled receptors. The encoded protein is involved in maintaining calcium homeostasis and in regulating osteoclast-mediated bone resorption. Polymorphisms in this gene have been associated with variations in bone mineral density and onset of osteoporosis. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
