PMID Text
21761364 Data show abundant mPRalpha (PAQR7), mPRbeta (PAQR8), and mPRgamma (PAQR5), but not classical nuclear PR (A or B isoforms) mRNA expression and mPRalpha protein expression in a panel of commonly used ovarian cancer cell lines.
19071147 mPRalpha is an intermediary in progestin stimulation of sperm motility in humans by a mechanism involving G-protein activation
18603275 Heterologous expression of MPRA in yeast confirms its ability to function as a membrane progesterone receptor.
17082257 cDNAs for the mPR alpha subtypes from spotted seatrout (st-mPRalpha) and humans (hu-mPRalpha) encode progestin receptors that display many functional characteristics of G protein-coupled receptors.
