AVPR2 Receptor for arginine vasopressin. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylate cyclase. Involved in renal water reabsorption. Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. Vasopressin/oxytocin receptor subfamily. Kidney. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
