Receptor for the C-type natriuretic peptide NPPC/CNP hormone. Has guanylate cyclase activity upon binding of its ligand. May play a role in the regulation of skeletal growth.
Involvement in disease
Defects in NPR2 are the cause of acromesomelic dysplasia Maroteaux type (AMDM) [MIM:602875]. Acromesomelic chondrodysplasias are rare hereditary skeletal disorders characterized by short stature, very short limbs, and hand/foot malformations. The severity of limb abnormalities increases from proximal to distal with profoundly affected hands and feet showing brachydactyly and/or rudimentary fingers (knob-like fingers). AMDM is an autosomal recessive form characterized by axial skeletal involvement with wedging of vertebral bodies. In AMDM all skeletal elements are present but show abnormal rates of linear growth.
Belongs to the adenylyl cyclase class-4/guanylyl cyclase family. Contains 1 guanylate cyclase domain. Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
Phosphorylation of the protein kinase-like domain is required for full activation by CNP.
