Snapin interacts with G-protein coupled receptor PKR2.
Changsha, China. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, Feb 2016
Mutations in Prokineticin receptor 2 (PKR2), a G-protein-coupled receptor, have been identified in patients with Kallmann syndrome and/or idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, characterized by delayed puberty and infertility.
Bv8/prokineticin 2 is involved in Aβ-induced neurotoxicity.
Ferrara, Italy. In Sci Rep, 2014
Analyzing primary cortical cultures (CNs) and cortex and hippocampus from Aβ treated rats, we found that PROK2 and its receptors PKR1 and PKR2 mRNA are up-regulated by Aβ, suggesting their potential involvement in AD.
[Congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and Kallmann syndrome in males].
Cluj-Napoca / Kolozsvár, Romania. In Presse Med, 2014
Mutations in KAL1, FGFR1/FGF8/FGF17, PROK2/PROKR2, NELF, CHD7, HS6ST1, WDR11, SEMA3A, SOX10, IL17RD2, DUSP6, SPRY4, and FLRT3 have been associated with KS but sometimes also with its milder hyposmic/normosmic CHH clinical variant.
Reproduction, smell, and neurodevelopmental disorders: genetic defects in different hypogonadotropic hypogonadal syndromes.
Liège, Belgium. In Front Endocrinol (lausanne), 2013
KS is associated with mutations in KAL1, FGFR1/FGF8, FGF17, IL17RD, PROK2/PROKR2, NELF, CHD7, HS6ST1, FLRT3, SPRY4, DUSP6, SEMA3A, NELF, and WDR11 genes that are related to defects in neuronal migration.
The role of hypoxia-induced genes in ovarian angiogenesis.
Jerusalem, Israel. In Reprod Fertil Dev, 2012
Special emphasis is given to hypoxia-induced, luteal cell-specific expression of multiple genes (vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGFA), fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF-2), prokineticin receptor 2 (PK-R2), stanniocalcin 1 (STC-1) and endothelin 2 (EDN-2) that participate in the angiogenic process during CL formation.
A genetic basis for functional hypothalamic amenorrhea.
Boston, United States. In N Engl J Med, 2011
RESULTS: Six heterozygous mutations were identified in 7 of the 55 patients with hypothalamic amenorrhea: two variants in the fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 gene FGFR1 (G260E and R756H), two in the prokineticin receptor 2 gene PROKR2 (R85H and L173R), one in the GnRH receptor gene GNRHR (R262Q), and one in the Kallmann syndrome 1 sequence gene KAL1 (V371I).
