Entrez Gene Summary for PROK1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene induces proliferation, migration, and fenestration (the formation of membrane discontinuities) in capillary endothelial cells derived from endocrine glands. It has little or no effect on a variety of other endothelial and non-endothelial cell types. Its expression is restricted to the steroidogenic glands (ovary, testis, adrenal, and placenta), is induced by hypoxia, and often complementary to the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), suggesting that these molecules function in a coordinated manner.

GeneCards Summary for PROK1 Gene

PROK1 (Prokineticin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PROK1 include Placental Insufficiency and Ectopic Pregnancy. Among its related pathways are p70S6K Signaling and Activation of cAMP-Dependent PKA. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include growth factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is PROK2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for PROK1 Gene

  • Potently contracts gastrointestinal (GI) smooth muscle. Induces proliferation, migration and fenestration (the formation of membrane discontinuities) in capillary endothelial cells derived from endocrine glands. Has little or no effect on a variety of other endothelial and non-endothelial cell types. Induces proliferation and differentiation, but not migration, of enteric neural crest cells. Directly influences neuroblastoma progression by promoting the proliferation and migration of neuroblastoma cells. Positively regulates PTGS2 expression and prostaglandin synthesis. May play a role in placentation. May play a role in normal and pathological testis angiogenesis.
