Substance-K receptor is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TACR2 gene.[1]

This gene belongs to a family of genes that function as receptors for tachykinins. Receptor affinities are specified by variations in the 5'-end of the sequence. The receptors belonging to this family are characterized by interactions with G proteins and 7 hydrophobic transmembrane regions. This gene encodes the receptor for the tachykinin neuropeptide substance K, also referred to as neurokinin A.[1]

Selective Ligands[edit]

Several selective ligands for NK2 are now available, and although most of the compounds developed so far are peptides, one small-molecule antagonist Saredutant is currently in clinical trials as an anxiolytic and antidepressant.


  • GR-64349 - potent and selective agonist, EC50 3.7nM, 7-amino acid polypeptide chain. CAS# 137593-52-3
