Protein Information
Name Opn3
Synonyms Ecpn
Function G-protein coupled receptor which selectively activates G proteins via ultraviolet A (UVA) light-mediated activation in the skin (PubMed:30284927). Binds both 11-cis retinal and all-trans retinal (By similarity). Regulates melanogenesis in melanocytes via inhibition of alpha-MSH-induced MC1R-mediated cAMP signaling, modulation of calcium flux, regulation of CAMK2 phosphorylation, and subsequently phosphorylation of CREB, p38, ERK and MITF in response to blue light (By similarity). Plays a role in melanocyte survival through regulation of intracellular calcium levels and subsequent BCL2/RAF1 signaling (By similarity). Additionally regulates apoptosis via cytochrome c release and subsequent activation of the caspase cascade (By similarity). Required for TYR and DCT blue light-induced complex formation in melanocytes (By similarity). Involved in keratinocyte differentiation in response to blue-light (By similarity). Required for the UVA- mediated induction of calcium and mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling resulting in the expression of MMP1, MMP2, MMP3, MMP9 and TIMP1 in dermal fibroblasts (By similarity). Plays a role in light- mediated glucose uptake, mitochondrial respiration and fatty acid metabolism in brown adipocyte tissues (PubMed:32040503). May be involved in photorelaxation of airway smooth muscle cells, via blue- light dependent GPCR signaling pathways (PubMed:30284927).
Cellular Location Cell membrane {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9H1Y3}; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cytoplasm {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9H1Y3}
Tissue Location Expressed in the eye (at protein level) (PubMed:30284927). Expressed in tracheal airway smooth muscle (PubMed:30284927). Expressed in brown adipocyte tissue; expression becomes more abundant during differentiation (PubMed:32040503) Strongly expressed in brain (PubMed:10234000). Highly expressed in the preoptic area and paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus (PubMed:10234000). Shows highly patterned expression in other regions of the brain, being enriched in selected regions of the cerebral cortex, cerebellar Purkinje cells, a subset of striatal neurons, selected thalamic nuclei, and a subset of interneurons in the ventral horn of the spinal cord (PubMed:10234000)
