A gene on chromosome 19p12 that encodes an endothelial differentiation, G protein-coupled (EDG) family receptor for lysophosphatidic acid, a bioactive lysophospholipid that mediates diverse biologic functions, including proliferation, platelet aggregation, smooth
muscle contraction, inhibition of neuroblastoma cell differentiation, chemotaxis and tumour cell invasion, by Ca2+ mobilisation.
