CaR (human)

CaR a G-protein coupled receptor that activates a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. Functions as a calcium sensor for parathyroid and kidney to determine the extracellular calcium concentration and thus helps to maintain a stable calcium concentration. Two alternatively-spliced isoforms have been described. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.

Chromosomal Location of Human Ortholog: 3q13
Cellular Component: integral to plasma membrane; plasma membrane
Molecular Function: phosphoinositide phospholipase C activity
Biological Process: anatomical structure morphogenesis; cellular calcium ion homeostasis; chemosensory behavior; detection of calcium ion; ossification
