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.
The Multispan PK2 mutant cell line stably expresses the human PROKR2 with the last five amino acids truncated at the C-terminus.
Application: Functional assays
