Abstract: Proteinase-activated receptor-2 (PAR2), a new member of family of the G protein-coupled receptors, is activated by proteolytic cleavage of its extracellular amino terminus, a mechanism similar to that used by the thrombin receptor. It has been suggested that PAR2 has a potential role in the late phases of the acute inflammatory response and in tissue repair and/or skin-related disorders. Here we demonstrate that the agonist peptide (SLIGRL) stimulated c-fos-mediated mitogenic activation and tyrosine phosphory…
