Prokineticins are cysteine-rich secreted proteins that regulate diverse biological processes, including gastrointestinal motility, angiogenesis, and circadian rhythms. Two closely related G protein-coupled receptors that mediate signal transduction of prokineticins have recently been cloned. The structural elements required for prokineticins' bioactivities...

Recent studies have identified two novel biofunctional proteins, termed prokineticin 1/EG-VEGF and prokineticin 2, which were mammalian homologues of mamba MIT1 and frog Bv8. Prokineticins have been demonstrated to exert their physiological functions through G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). In this...
