Background: Prolactin-releasing peptide receptor PRRP (or GPR10) is detected in human brain, pituitaries, normal portions of adrenal glands and various tumor tissues. High level of expression is detected in pheochromocytomas. GPR10 was investigated regarding the effect of normal and high-fat diets on energy intake, body weight, and glucose homeostasis in wild-type and GPR10 knockout mice. The investigation provided direct evidence that GPR10 is involved in the regulation of energy balance.
Application: Functional assays
