General Family Information

Prokineticin receptors are a family of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) comprised of two receptor subtypes: PKR1 and PKR2. Prokineticin receptors play a role in the regulation of a variety of biological processes such as circadian rhythms, GI motility, angiogenesis, hematopoiesis, and neurogenesis. Research, however, is still being done on the biology of this newly discovered family of receptors.
