NPSR1

A gene on chromosome 7p14.3 that encodes a member of the G protein-coupled receptor 1 family which is expressed in respiratory cilia and in bronchial smooth muscle cells in asthmatics; NPSR1 may be active in signalling pathways in an autocrine or paracrine fashion.

Molecular pathology
NPSR1 mutations may play a pathogenetic role in asthma and other IgE-mediated diseases.
