Data Sheet

Background: GPR87 is a recently discovered LPA receptor. It is highly expressed in neoplastic cells found in the cervical squamous, urinary bladder carcinomas, lung carcinomas, head and neck squamous cell carcinomas, and the placenta. GPR87 plays an important role in normal ovarian development as well as intracellular signal transduction. GPR87 has been linked to lung and ovarian cancer, as well as tumor cell survival. Current research strongly supports the role of GPR87 as a p53 regulator and its potential as a therapeutic target for the treatment of cancer.

Application: Functional assays
