Arginine vasopressin receptor 2 (AVPR2) (Birnbaumer et al. 1992) is expressed in the kidneys and can bind the signal peptide Arg-vasopressin (AVP(20-28)), a cleaved peptide from the precursor AVP protein (Mohr et al. 1985, Sausville et al. 1985). This receptor uses the G protein alpha s subunit as its second messenger system.
