AGTR-2, also known as AT2, is a 7-transmembrane protein that belongs to family 1 of G protein-coupled receptors. Both AGTR-2 and AGTR‑1 bind Angiotensin II and function in the control of hemodynamics. In contrast to AGTR‑1, which promotes vasoconstriction and cell proliferation, AGTR-2 inhibits growth and promotes apoptosis. In addition, Angiotensin II-induced AGTR-2 signaling induces the release of nitric oxide in the heart, kidney, and brain and participates in tissue morphogenesis and repair. Human AGTR-2 shares 92% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat AGTR-2.
