Study findings point out that PAR2 could play an essential role in gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) pathogenesis - even repeated short-term exposure to weakly acidic conditions lead to the upregulation of PAR2 and subsequent activation of the intense IL-8 release in the esophageal mucosa and initiation of mucosal immune response in GERD.
PAR-2 is expressed basolaterally in airway cells, where it stimulates both intracellular Ca(2+) release and Ca(2+) influx, which activates low-level nitric oxide production, increases apical membrane Cl(-) permeability approximately 3-5-fold, and increases ciliary beating approximately 20-50%.

PAR2 plays an important role in the proliferation and metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma.
PAR2 expression is crucial for TGF-beta1-induced ERK activation and cell motility. Functional cooperation of PAR2 and TGF-beta1 involves a physical interaction between PAR2 and ALK5.
Activation of PAR2 inhibits the expression of IL-10 in B cells, which can be reversed by treating B cells with Bcl2L12 shRNA-carrying liposomes.

PAR2 is crucial for TGF-beta1-induced cell motility by its ability to sustain expression of ALK5. Therapeutically targeting PAR2 may thus be a promising approach in preventing TGF-beta-dependent driven metastatic dissemination in PDAC and possibly other stroma-rich tumour types.

findings showed in intestinal epithelial cells that PAR-2 activation leads to polarized IL-8 secretion in accordance with the side of PAR-2 activation, apical or basolateral, but do not affect ubiquitin proteasome system; demonstrate that PAR-2 activation leads to an increased IL-8 production and can affect proteasome system, particularly when PAR-2 activation was induced in the apical side
TF-induced microvessel stabilization is regulated via PAR2-SMAD3 that is indispensable for the maintenance of vascular integrity.
PAR-2- and PAR-1-mediated TNF-alpha release from monocytes suggests that these unique protease receptors are involved in the pathogenesis of inflammation.
Results indicate that chymotrypsin-like serine protease enhances soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase 1 production through protease-activated receptor-2 in trophoblast cells and thus plays an important additional role in preeclampsia pathogenesis.

PAR-2 plays an important role in the progression of ovarian clear cell carcinoma.
Data suggest activation of PAR2 via FVIIA/TF signaling activates PI3K/AKT signaling, inactivates GSK3b signaling, leads to accumulation of beta-catenin, and promotes tumor cell migration/invasion. (PAR2 = protease-activated receptor 2; FVIIA = coagulation factor VIIa; TF = tissue factor/thromboplastin; PI3K = phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase; AKT = proto-oncogene protein c-akt; GSK3b = glycogen synthase kinase 3 beta)

PAR2 is critically important in the pathogenesis of adenine-induced tubular injury
The levels of miR-223, miR-339 and miR-21, which are associated with platelet activation, were elevated in pooled mouse plasma exosomes before thrombosis and enriched in thrombin-stimulated platelet-derived exosomes in vitro.
Neutrophil elastase induced acute inflammation and pain in knee joints of mice. These changes are PAR2-dependent and appear to involve activation of a p44/42 MAPK pathway. Blocking neutrophil elastase, PAR2 and p44/42 MAPK activity can reduce inflammation and pain, suggesting their utility as therapeutic targets.

PAR2 activation through endogenous mast cell tryptase activity could be required, at least partially, to mediate CCL11-induced eosinophil migration
PAR1 and PAR2 regulate endothelial NO synthase phosphorylation and activity through G(12/13) and G(q), delineating the signaling pathways by which the proteases act on protease-activated receptors to modulate endothelial functions.
Coagulation factor II (thrombin) receptor-like 1 (F2RL1) is a member of the large family of 7-transmembrane-region receptors that couple to guanosine-nucleotide-binding proteins. F2RL1 is also a member of the protease-activated receptor family. It is activated by trypsin, but not by thrombin. It is activated by proteolytic cleavage of its extracellular amino terminus. The new amino terminus functions as a tethered ligand and activates the receptor. The F2RL1 gene contains two exons and is widely expressed in human tissues. The predicted protein sequence is 83% identical to the mouse receptor sequence.
