PTHR2 is a specific receptor for parathyroid hormone. The activity of this receptor is mediated by g proteins which activate adenylyl cyclase. PTHR2 may be responsible for PTH effects in a number of physiological systems, and may also play a significant role in pancreatic function. PTHR2 presence in neurons indicates that it may function as a neurotransmitter receptor.
