Vasoactive intestinal peptide receptor 1 (VPAC1) couples heterotrimeric G proteins, Gas and G[alpha]i, that activate and inhibit adenylate cyclase cAMP production.
Glucagon, GIP, pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide, secretin and vasoactive intestinal peptide receptors als o belong to this receptor superfamily.
Vasoactive intestinal peptide receptor 1 (VPAC1) is a 7 transmembrane (TM) G protein coupled receptor that couples to Gas and increases intracellular cAMP levels in response to external stimuli.
This study investigates vasoactive intestinal peptide receptor 1 (VPAC1) and VPAC2 regulation during the immune response of murine T cells.
