FunctionReceptor for prostacyclin (prostaglandin I2 or PGI2). The activity of this receptor is mediated by G(s) proteins which activate adenylate cyclase.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
Post-translational modificationsPalmitoylation of either Cys-308 or Cys-311 is sufficient to maintain functional coupling to G(s) and signaling. Isoprenylation does not influence ligand binding but is required for efficient coupling to the effectors adenylyl cyclase and phospholipase C.
