Gonadotropin-releasing hormone

Type II GnRH receptor, GNRHR2
In non-hominoid primates and non-mammalian vertebrates, the gonadotropin releasing hormone 2 receptor (GnRHR2) encodes a seven-transmembrane G-protein coupled receptor. However, in human, the N-terminus of the predicted protein contains a frameshift and premature stop codon. In human, GnRHR2 transcription occurs but the gene does not likely produce a functional C-terminal multi-transmembrane protein. A non-transcribed pseudogene of GnRHR2 is located on chromosome 14.
