  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt or IP.
  • Target

    • Function
      This is a receptor for the anterior pituitary hormone prolactin (PRL). Isoform 4 is unable to transduce prolactin signaling. Isoform 6 is unable to transduce prolactin signaling.
    • Tissue specificity
      Expressed in breast, placenta, kidney, liver and pancreas.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the type I cytokine receptor family. Type 1 subfamily.
      Contains 2 fibronectin type-III domains.
    • Domain
      The WSXWS motif appears to be necessary for proper protein folding and thereby efficient intracellular transport and cell-surface receptor binding.
      The box 1 motif is required for JAK interaction and/or activation.
    • Cellular localization
      Secreted and Membrane.
