IGF2R(redirected from cation-independent mannose-6 phosphate receptor)
IGF2RA gene on chromosome 6q26 that encodes a receptor for both insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2) and mannose 6-phosphate (M6P). IGF2R plays a role in intracellular trafficking of lysosomal enzymes, activating transforming growth factor beta, IGF2 degradation and regulating T-cell coactivation by binding DPP4.
