Prokineticin 1 (PROK1): (Random Families > RefOG063) - PROK1 or (endocrine gland-derived vascular endothelial growth factor:EG-VEGF) induces proliferation, migration, and fenestration in capillary endothelial cells derived from endocrine glands. Its expression is induced by hypoxia and is restricted to the steroidogenic glands (ovary, testis, adrenal, and placenta). Its expression is often complementary to the expression of VEGF (MIM 192240), suggesting that these molecules function in a coordinated manner.[supplied by OMIM]
