receptors, neurokinin-2

A class of cell surface receptors for tachykinins that prefers neurokinin a (nka, substance k, neurokinin alpha, neuromedin l), neuropeptide k (npk), or neuropeptide gamma over other tachykinins. Neurokinin-2 (nk-2) receptors have been cloned and are similar to other g-protein coupled receptors.
