The sigma-2 receptor (σ2R) is a sigma receptor subtype which preferentially binds to siramesine[1] and PB28.[2] PGRMC1 was recently identified as the sigma-2 receptor.[3] Unlike sigma-1 receptor, it has not yet been cloned.

Activation of the receptor can cause apoptosis.[4] A pharmacophore model based on benzooxazolone derivatives has been developed.[5]

Selective ligandsEdit

Several ligands with high affinity and selectivity for the σ2 receptor over the σ1 receptor have been reported:
