FunctionThis is a receptor for calcitonin. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylyl cyclase. The calcitonin receptor is thought to couple to the heterotrimeric guanosine triphosphate-binding protein that is sensitive to cholera toxin.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 2 family.
Cellular localizationCell membrane.

Predicted band size: 60 kDa
Observed band size: 65 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
Additional bands at: 45 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
Exposure time: 5 minutes
Rat Calcitonin receptor precursor has a number of potential glycosylation sites which may affect the migration of the protein (SwissProt data), explaining the bands seen around 65 kDa.
