Literature associating NTSR1 and petrous apex meningioma
High-affinity levocabastine-insensitive neurotensin receptor; G-protein coupled receptor for the tridecapeptide neurotensin (NTS). Signaling is effected via G proteins that activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. Signaling leads to the activation of downstream MAP kinases and protects cells against apoptosis.
