This gene encodes a member of the G-protein-coupled receptor family. The encoded protein binds to prokineticins (1 and 2), leading to the activation of MAPK and STAT signaling pathways. Prokineticins are protein ligands involved in angiogenesis and inflammation. The encoded protein is expressed in peripheral tissues such as those comprising the circulatory system, lungs, reproductive system, endocrine system and the gastrointestinal system. The protein may be involved in signaling in human fetal ovary during initiation of primordial follicle formation. Sequence variants in this gene may be associated with recurrent miscarriage.

PROKR1 (Prokineticin Receptor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PROKR1 include Ectopic Pregnancy. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and Signaling by GPCR. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and neuropeptide Y receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is PROKR2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PROKR1 Gene
Receptor for prokineticin 1. Exclusively coupled to the G(q) subclass of heteromeric G proteins. Activation leads to mobilization of calcium, stimulation of phosphoinositide turnover and activation of p44/p42 mitogen-activated protein kinase. May play a role during early pregnancy.
