Kinexis and Merck have been collaborating during the past year on the biologic target validation of a prokineticin receptor in central nervous system (CNS) indications.
Achieving this milestone demonstrates the ability of Kinexis to work effectively with our network of collaborators to validate the prokineticin pathway for drug discovery and development," said Patricia L.
GPR54 and its ligand metastin, prokineticin 2 and its receptor, and the FGFR1 signaling pathway are all critical elements for GnRH neuron integrity in humans discovered using these approaches.
Kinexis' collaboration with Merck involves biologic target validation and small molecule screening of a prokineticin receptor in central nervous system (CNS) indications.
Kinexis is a young company built around the newly discovered prokineticin ligand/receptor pairs and their related biology.
