Summaries for PRLHR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PRLHR Gene

  • PRLHR is a 7-transmembrane domain receptor for prolactin-releasing hormone (PRLH; MIM 602663) that is highly expressed in anterior pituitary (Ozawa et al., 2002 [PubMed 11923475]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for PRLHR Gene

PRLHR (Prolactin Releasing Hormone Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PRLHR include uterine fibroid. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and neuropeptide Y receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is NPFFR1.
