It has been overlooked, somewhat due to the lack of a P2ry11 gene orthologue in the murine genome, which prevents the generation of knockout mice, which have been so helpful for defining the roles of other P2Y receptors. Furthermore, some of the studies reported to date have methodological shortcomings, making it difficult to determine the function of P2Y11 with certainty.
