Background: Prokineticin receptor 2 (PK2 or GPR73L1) is a receptor for the cysteine-rich secreted peptides prokineticin 1 and 2. RT-PCR detected PK2 expression in the brain, testis, small intestine, ovary, thyroid, pituitary and salivary gland.
Application: Functional assays
Figure 1. Dose-dependent stimulation of calcium flux upon treatment with ligand, measured with MultiscreenTM Calcium 1.0 No Wash Assay Kit (Multispan MSCA01). Figure 2. Receptor expression on cell surface measured by flow cytometry (FACS) using an anti-FLAG antibody. Thin line: parental cells; thick line: receptor-expressing cells.
