REEP2 encodes a member of the receptor expression enhancing protein family. Additionally we are shipping REEP2 Antibodies (54) and REEP2 Proteins (3) and many more products for this protein.
Expression of the REEP1 (show REEP1 ELISA Kits)/REEP2 subfamily appears to be restricted to neuronal and neuronal-like exocytotic tissues, consistent with neuronally restricted symptoms of REEP1 (show REEP1 ELISA Kits) genetic disorders.
We have identified mutations in REEP2 in two families with relatively pure, early-onset hereditary spastic paraplegia, one with autosomal-dominant and the other with autosomal-recessive transmission.
In mouse, Reep2 enhances sweet receptor function by a different mechanism than Reep1 uses to enhance olfactory receptor function.
REEP2 recruits sweet receptors into lipid raft microdomains localized near the taste cell's apical region, thereby improving G-protein-coupled receptor (show GPR34 ELISA Kits) signaling and promoting receptor access to tastants arriving through the apical taste pore.
This gene encodes a member of the receptor expression enhancing protein family. Studies of a related gene in mouse suggest that the encoded protein is found in the cell membrane and enhances the function of sweet taste receptors. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
