Summary of ADORA2A

This gene encodes proteins that respond to extracellular cues and activate intracellular signal transduction pathways. The proteins play an important role in many biological functions, such as cardiac rhythm and circulation, cerebral and renal blood flow, immune function, pain regulation, and sleep (R).

It is associated with inflammatory diseases and neurodegenerative disorders (R).
