  • Function
    May function as an output molecule from the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) that transmits behavioral circadian rhythm. May also function locally within the SCN to synchronize output. Potently contracts gastrointestinal (GI) smooth muscle.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in the testis and, at low levels, in the small intestine.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in PROK2 are the cause of Kallmann syndrome type 4 (KAL4) [MIM:610628]; also known as hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and anosmia. Anosmia or hyposmia is related to the absence or hypoplasia of the olfactory bulbs and tracts. Hypogonadism is due to deficiency in gonadotropin-releasing hormone and probably results from a failure of embryonic migration of gonadotropin-releasing hormone-synthesizing neurons. KAL4 patients have variable degrees of olfactory and reproductive dysfunction, but do not show any of the occasional clinical anomalies reported in Kallmann syndrome such as renal agenesis, cleft lip/palate, selective tooth agenesis, and bimanual synkinesis.
