Gene Family: Prokineticin receptors (PROKR)

Prokineticin receptor: The prokineticin receptor is a G protein-coupled receptor which binds the peptide hormone prokineticin. There are two variants each encoded by a different gene ( PROKR1, PROKR2 ). These receptors mediate gastrointestinal smooth muscle contraction and angiogenesis. [Source: Wikipedia]
