PROKR2 prokineticin receptor 2

Also known as: HH3; KAL3; PKR2; GPRg2; GPR73b; GPR73L1; dJ680N4.3

Summary

Prokineticins are secreted proteins that can promote angiogenesis and induce strong gastrointestinal smooth muscle contraction. The protein encoded by this gene is an integral membrane protein and G protein-coupled receptor for prokineticins. The encoded protein is similar in sequence to GPR73, another G protein-coupled receptor for prokineticins. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
