Gene Detail

Gene Symbol CALCR
Synonyms CRT | CT-R | CTR | CTR1
Gene Description CALCR, calcitonin receptor, is a G-protein-coupled receptor that mediates downstream signaling in response to ligand binding and plays a role in calcium homeostasis (PMID: 29263181, PMID: 21649645, PMID: 11298188, PMID: 23820954). Increased CALCR expression has been observed in prostate cancer (PMID: 23820954), and CALCR loss of function mutations have been demonstrated in glioblastoma (PMID: 29263181).
