Data Sheet

Background: The relaxin family peptide receptor RXFP1, also known as LGR7 or RX1, is a 757-amino acid 7 transmembrane protein. RT-PCR detected RXFP1 expression in various organs of the reproductive system along with the brain, heart, and lungs. RXFP1 is known to be important to the connective tissue cells of the breast and play a central role in endometrial deciduation.
