Protease activated receptor 3 (PAR3), previously known as Coagulation factor II (thrombin) receptor-like 2, is a protein encoded by the F2RL2 gene in humans .

Coagulation factor II (thrombin) receptor-like 2 (F2RL2) is a member of the large family of 7-transmembrane receptors that couple to guanosine-nucleotide-binding proteins. F2RL2 is also a member of the protease-activated receptor family and activated by thrombin. F2RL2 is activated by proteolytic cleavage of its extracellular amino terminus. The new amino terminus functions as a tethered ligand and activates the receptor. F2RL2 is a cofactor for F2RL3 activation by thrombin. It mediates thrombin-triggered phosphoinositide hydrolysis and is expressed in a variety of tissues.[1]
