Prokineticin receptor 2 (PKR2), is a G protein-coupled receptor encoded by the PROKR2 gene in humans.[1]

Prokineticins are secreted proteins that can promote angiogenesis and induce strong gastrointestinal smooth muscle contraction. The protein encoded by this gene is an integral membrane protein and G protein-coupled receptor for prokineticins. The encoded protein is similar in sequence to GPR73, another G protein-coupled receptor for prokineticins.[1]
