PROKR2A gene on chromosome 20p12.3 that encodes the G protein-coupled receptor for prokineticin 2, one of a family of proteins that promote angiogenesis and induce strong gastrointestinal smooth muscle contraction. PROKR2 activation mobilises calcium, stimulates phosphoinositide turnover and activates p44/p42 mitogen-activated protein kinase.
