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.

Type-II GnRH receptor genes have been characterized recently in nonhuman primates, but the human receptor gene homolog contains a frameshift, a premature stop codon (UGA), and a 3' overlap of the RBM8A gene on chromosome 1q.12.

Using sequence information for extracellular loop 3 of a putative Type II GnRH receptor from a reptile species, we have looked for a Type II GnRH receptor gene in the human genome EST (expressed sequence tag) database.
