SLURP2, Secreted Ly-6/uPAR domain-containing protein 2
Also Known as
Binds and may modulate the functional properties of nicotinic and muscarinic acetylcholine receptors. May regulate keratinocytes proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. In vitro moderately inhibits ACh-evoked currents of alpha-3:beta-2-containing nAChRs and strongly these of alpha-4:beta-2-containing nAChRs, modulates alpha-7-containing nAChRs, and inhibits nicotine-induced signaling probably implicating alpha-3:beta-4-containing nAChRs. Proposed to act on alpha-3:beta-2 and alpha-7 nAChRs in an orthosteric, and on mAChRs, such as CHRM1 and CHRM3, in an allosteric manner. Interacts with CHRNA3, CHRNA4, CHRNA5, CHRNA7, CHRNB2 and CHRNB4. Interacts with CHRM1 and CHRM3 probably in an allosteric manner (PubMed:27485575).
