Orexin receptor type 2 (Ox2R or OX2), also known as hypocretin receptor type 2, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the HCRTR2 gene.[1]

Function[edit]

OX2 is a G-protein coupled receptor expressed exclusively in the brain. It has 64% identity with OX1. OX2 binds both orexin A and orexin B neuropeptides. OX2 is involved in the central feedback mechanism that regulates feeding behaviour.[1]
