Overview 
Receptor for pituitary gland growth hormone involved in regulating postnatal body growth. On ligand binding, couples to the JAK2/STAT5 pathway (By similarity).  
1
  • UniProtKB
The soluble form (GHBP) acts as a reservoir of growth hormone in plasma and may be a modulator/inhibitor of GH signaling.  
1
  • UniProtKB
Isoform  Iso 2   Up-regulates the production of GHBP and acts as a negative inhibitor of GH signaling.
