Gene Family: F2R receptors (F2R)

Also known as : "Protease-activated receptors", "PARs", "Proteinase-activated receptors", "Coagulation factor II (thrombin) receptors"

Protease-activated receptor: Protease-activated receptor s are a subfamily of related G protein-coupled receptors that are activated by cleavage of part of their extracellular domain. They are highly expressed in platelets, but also on endothelial cells, myocytes and neurons. [Source: Wikipedia]
