Identifiers
CYSLTR2 Gene
RNA expression pattern

Cysteinyl leukotriene receptor 2 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CYSLTR2 gene.[1][2][3]

The cysteinyl leukotrienes LTC4, LTD4, and LTE4 are important mediators of human bronchial asthma. Pharmacologic studies have determined that cysteinyl leukotrienes activate at least 2 receptors, the protein encoded by this gene and CYSLTR1. This encoded receptor is a member of the superfamily of G protein-coupled receptors. It seems to play a major role in endocrine and cardiovascular systems.[3]
